I am a SAHM/college student (education major) and my DH is in the PhD program and is also a teacher’s assistant. We do not make a lot of money but he is 36 and wants to have one more and after the birth of our son I am not able to have any more children. I love the idea we have a 1 year old now and we know we have more love to give. However we won’t be making any money for the next few years. We were last year temporary guardians to two beautiful children for 6 weeks and loved it A LOT! I have contacted our DES office about adopting a foster child, maybe an older one 5-6, but now I am getting cold feet because we don’t make a lot of money and I think that the agency may think we are nuts for applying considering our finances. We don’t own a house but we do have a nice apartment and a newer car. So should we go for it and face possible rejection or continue waiting even though we want an other child desperately.

You don't need that much money to adopt a foster child. In fact, you will likely get money to help raise them. I think it's an amazing thing to do. If my husband would agree I would love to do it.
