I don't think I will have anymore kids, just because of the health risks I may have if I carried one of my own again....but I constantly think about more kids. It makes me sad to think I will never have another child to care for.
I was thinking about foster parenting. I was given the advice that because I live in a small town, it's really easy to have the family or friends of that child try to abduct them back and have high drama and risk for our own children. That scares the crap out of me, but I feel like our family has a lot of love that it could be giving to a child, or eventually children. We would probably want to make a permanent home for some of these kiddos.
So share with me your horror stories, your joys, your cautions...everything!
Thanks! I'm also looking at groups, but thought I would ask here too! :)

My daughter sign up for foster care with an option to adopt, you run the risk of having the child taken from you, but she was lucky enough to get a 5 day old little angel and is keeping her, mom does not want her and dad is unknown, and no other close family members that want her either...we lucked out big time...she will be 5 months next week..and thriving...even though she was born with cocaine and weed in her system....
