Sammanfattning

Foster carers are committed their fostering task. Fostering has an impact on all family member. This paper focuses on the relation between foster mothers and foster fathers. One might say that through fostering men and women become engaged in a “joint venture” – a kind of teamwork were both partners are working towards a mutual goal. This partnership increases the closeness between the couple, and can be said to be one of the rewarding parts of fostering. Even though fostering mainly is initiated by women, men eventually become more engaged as foster carers. This commitment can make them more involved in the “inner life” of the family, an involvement which is appreciated by their partners. These rewarding parts of fostering seems to make up for tiredness and lack of time – most foster carers say that fostering have improved their family life. It is not easy to be a foster carer, but fostering presents a kind of challenge, which most carers find to be rewarding.
