About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.

  1. We have had 10 foster kids over the years and at present have three. Two of the current children have been in our care for 3 years. It took the C.M.R. two years to organise the children’s court for either place of safety or Foster Care. To date, we have not received a single cent in Foster Care allowance and the Social Workers seldom answer letters written to them. They don’t seem to realise that they receive a subsidy from the State, and should provide a service for that and at least be polite enough to answer letters or return ‘phone calls. Very unsatisfactory service
