The role of foster parents in giving children in need an improved chance in life cannot be overstated. Those who decide to offer an alternative home - either short-term or long-term - deserve the greatest credit for their selflessness and offer of a more normal existence to children put in care of local authorities.

Two of those foster parents are Colin and Sharon Jamison, who have taken 28 children under their wings during the past 30 years, and they insist that they have got as much back from the children as they have offered.

Their example should encourage others to also consider fostering and making a difference to deserving children.
