/ Family Matters / Kids & Family / Interview: Gay Foster Dad Martin Baldock


Disability worker, Martin Baldock walked into Yooralla looking for a job. Instead of coming home with a job, he came home with a kid. Okay, slight exaggeration, but ..

Martin & partner Jason, fostered 11 year-old Blayke, who is autistic, from Yooralla’s Family Options Program three years ago. In the past year, Martin and Jason have taken on two more children from the foster care system.

Joined by Martin, hear the story of these amazing gay foster dads tonight on Family Matters. Martin certainly also walked out of the studio this night with our hearts.  We promise to have him back for a more in-depth interview.

We are also joined by Cathy Catlow, Coordinator Recruitment and Carer Support Yooralla’s Family Options Program
