My husband and I were talking about fostering children when our youngest turns 5 or 6 (she's 3 right now). A few 'issues' we were trying to work through are (and I'm hoping someone can help):
- I'm in college and by the time my DD turns 5 or 6, I'll almost be finished and I'll want to have a JOB - even though we DO want to foster. We want to foster small children but I would have to put a little confused child in daycare or something. Does anyone else foster AND work? How is it?
- My husband said his main "issue" is that he would HATE for a child to come from a terrible background to live with us (we're all happy, healthy) and then have to go back to their terrible homelife. He says it would make HIM feel guilty (to which I said "so nobody should ever foster because you don't want to give a kid a sense of safety?" and he said no, that wasn't what he meant.) How does that affect you?
- And how does it affect your kids?
