NORTH HARBOUR NEWS, OCTOBER 14, 2011
Could you provide a stable,
loving home to a Brother
Sara & Ben have experienced trauma and loss and are in
need of a family to help them reach their full potential.
Sara aged 10, enjoys art, reading and netball. She is very
helpful and polite but struggles with her self-esteem so
needs someone who can give her a lot of reassurance.
Ben aged 7, is always busy and inquisitive so needs close
supervision. He loves music and playing and is doing
well with speech therapy and a teacher aide at school.
We are looking for either one family for Sara & Ben or
two families working together to provide frequent
contact. The ideal home would be one where there are
no other children or where they are the youngest.
Sara and Ben have moved around a lot so have difficulty
forming attachment. They need stability and routine
with a family where they feel loved and can gain a sense
of belonging. If you think you could offer Sara & Ben a
home, we are keen to hear from you.

it easier to see where future
cost pressures are likely and
how best to manage them.

cancer registrations, is the
most expensive cancer to
treat at more than $80
million a year. This is fol-
