Compass - Who Foster Cares?

As demand for Foster Carers in Australia increases, Compass meets several foster families to learn about the challenges and rewards fostering can bring. Almost 40-thousand Australian children live in ‘out-of-home-care’, but already there aren’t enough foster homes to go around.

Now, foster care providers in NSW are reaching out to previously untapped families; gay couples and single parents among them. So what does it take to be a foster parent? Who currently welcomes foster kids - many of whom have suffered abuse or neglect - into their homes and lives? Why do they do it, and what are the rewards?
