Foster parents?

Have you considered becoming a foster parent or are you a foster parent? My husband and I were talking about what we would do when we were older and our kids had grown up and left home. I expressed interest in possibly becoming foster parents and he seemed to like the idea. We have many years to think about it, but I was curious how many moms out there have thought about this.

  • We are foster parents and eventually adopted through foster care. It's definitely time consuming and challenging, but when you see a child improving phsyically or emotionally, then it makes it all worth it.

  • I personally couldn't do it. I would be to attached and not want them to leave!
