Josh Jenkins

Josh Jenkins

Australian Rules Football star, Josh Jenkins (b. 1989), was in foster care from the age of two.
When Josh was two years old, he and his baby sister, Jenna, were placed with Edith and George Casey. The couple had already raised six children of their own and lived on a hobby farm in Swan Hill, Victoria. When Josh was four and a half, the couple became permanent carers for the siblings, now including a younger brother, Jordan.
Josh had a very positive experience in care. Edith, who Josh calls ‘Grandma’, is one of his biggest supporters and he attributes his successful football career to the stability, nurture and encouragement of his foster mother.
