Getting Sole Parental Responsibility for a foster child

Add Topic
Hi.

I have had a foster child in my care (long term) since he was 10 weeks old (he is now 5 years old).

He did suffer a significant brain injury prior to coming into my care, so I attend to all his medical appointments etc.

I would like to proceed with getting Sole Parental Responsibility, but I have been advised that it would be difficult as I have two of his half-siblings residing with me (he has another full sibling living in another foster home).

In the best interest of this child, I would like to give him permanency with myself, as I am the psychological mother in his world.

Has anyone gone through the same experiences, or can give me some advice?
