Hello, i am wanting to hear of any other foster carers/kinship foster carers who have travelled with a child on a full care order? I am a Kinship foster carer and have obtained the childs passport from through social services for our travel date in may 2006. I am wondering when they check us in will it appear on that passport that this child is on a full care order, and will we need to provide any other proof as to who we are. Social services are going to write us a letter but i would still like to hear from any one who has indeed travelled abroad with a foster child. Many thanks.
We had a child on a full care order with us for 4 years and it did not appear on her passport. Every time we went abroad we took a letter from social services in case we got asked about the different name but we were never questioned even though she was under 16.
