I've always thought that I'd like to complete my family w/an older child from foster care. When I say "older" child; what I mean is I'm not looking to stand in line for an infant I can 'call my own'. I'm not intimidated by the idea of a child knowing I chose them to become part of our family. (DH agrees)
We're not in a position to do this just yet; but I'd like to start getting things in order so we can be; but what am I facing here? I've seen several comments here about difficulties & having to 'give them back' etc...
I don't want to foster a child; form a bond & then be told we can't adopt them. How do we avoid that situation? Or at least try?
Down the line when our children are older; I'm thinking (still thinking) that I might also be simply a foster home to older teens; as they're almost ready to be adults & IDK don't 'need' adoption; but just a place to call home. I have enough heart to give them that.
