I know I'm late and you probably won't see this, but for anyone in a similar situation, try to think of it this way - if you hadn't been there at that exact second, your place in the road more than likely wouldn't have been empty, the car behind you would have taken it. He still would have been hit and killed, just by someone else, maybe someone who would have handled the situation much worse.

I'm thinking of becoming a foster parent at some point in the future (far, far in the future, at the moment I can barely afford to feed myself let alone a kid). What advice would you give to someone thinking about fostering a child?
Also, congrats on being an 18 year old who can spell the word 'feat', that's unusual on its own ...

Thanks for that - it's not going to happen for at least a decade, no way I'll be responsible enough to look after a kid for a long time. I was talking to a foster parent a few days ago, she had a gorgeous little girl who she'd had for 3+ years, since she was 14 months, and there was no guarantee her birth mother (drugs, alcohol etc) couldn't get her back at almost any time. That idea scares the crap out of me, I can't even foster guide dog puppies knowing I'd have to give them back. For that reason (and cos they're harder to place) I'd probably foster teenagers. Sounds like you'd be the perfect kid to foster, do you have any horror stories about other kids?
