What It's Like
Now 20, Larnie was removed from her mother when she was two years old and never returned to live with her. She spent 12 years with her first foster family, and at the time she had no idea why she had been taken into care.
My mum’s alcoholism made her unable to protect me.
She says her first foster family were all she knew, but remembers being teased about being a foster kid at school.
I would hear comments that I was a foster kid and my mum didn't want me; she didn't love me.
I guess I was a victim of bullying, just because they didn't understand. They didn't know the reason I was brought into care and at that stage I didn't know either.
