I'm not sure where I should put this question but I'm considering taking foster children in the future (a year or two from now), by then my daughter will be 10-11.
I won't be doing so until we're in a town house with an extra bed room because I don't think it's fair for her to have to share with a non sibling and I've already decided we will only be taking children younger then she is.
She likes the idea now as she's an only child and has always wanted to have younger children around but knows I have no intention of having more babies of my own. She knows that the children who would be coming to stay with us would be temperary and have troubles and challenges that will need some special attention.
Has anyone else done foster care? What sort of issues came up with your natural children towards it?

Next question overall
Do some babies just not like to laugh all the time?
