How many people think it is crazy that we want 4 kids, and want to do foster care when all my children are 7 and older??

Everyone I know thinks I am crazy.. but I know that is what I want to do.... Even if it will make things a little tighter, I am a good mom, and I want to help other kids who don't have good parents in their lives.

  • If you're crazy, then my best friend should have her head examined. She and her husband have three birth children ages 20, 19 and 17 (all still live at home.) They currently have three young children from foster care, two of which they adopted last Friday, ages 2 1/2, 2 and 1 year old. They are awaiting the 2 1/2 year old's release for adoption and also hoping for two more children to be placed with them. I was a foster parent before adopting my own children and I can tell you it's the best thing I ever did with my life. Good luck, I hope you go ahead with it.

  • I believe it is God's will that people take the all of the children that He gives. So I hope you will do just that and foster too:-)

  • I am pregnant with #4 and would love to have more. But my bestfriend is one of those you have 2 kids and that is more than enough. I have trouble with people thinking that I ignore my older ones, and it is not the case. I just quit leaving the conversations open to opinion or argument, they know how I feel and leave me alone about it.

  • I don't think you are crazy at all. There are a lot of kids that need caring people to help them out. Good for you.
