I need some advice.
My husband and I have a 2 yr old boy. We love him very much, and we have been ttc for over a year and a half. We have room in our home, and I am a sahm and my husband has a steady job.
I looked online at the children available for adoption from the foster care in our state. I read the bio of a 14 yr old girl and I can't get her out of my mind. She has siblings that she needs to stay in touch with, is below grade level, and per the bio "has behavioral challenges". Other than that she seems like a regular teen girl, likes clothes, wants a pet etc.
I need someone to tell me straight out how hard it really is to bring a teen girl into the family. I feel like I don't really have a grasp on the real issues involved and that I am caught up imaging what could be.
I'm in my mid twenties, and we haven't even done a home study or started any processes.
