Johanna Surgeoner has been selflessly devoting her time, love and home to fostering children for seven years. Prior to fostering children, Johanna lived and ran her own business in Spain with her husband and children. Following the sad passing of both her mother and husband, Johanna moved back to the UK where she began working in another nursery.
With three children of her own, Johanna applied to foster children and was passed through the panel, only to receive a telephone call to say her first two foster children were arriving later that day, a call that was received ahead of her approval notification.
Johanna has fostered over 20 children, alongside providing respite for other foster carers, which proves to be challenging and trying at times, but extremely rewarding. She strives to create a loving environment and creates an extensive storybook for each of the children to keep and take with them, once they are adopted. The book includes childhood photos and memories that they can keep with them forever.
