Goodness, tough situation. I understand your concern. I assume there is no one else in the family that would be willing to take them? I don't have an answer. I'm sorry. All I know is that has to be a heart breaking decision to make either way. If you don't take them then it affects their lives even more, if you do take them then your family will be affected also.

That's a tough call. It's also a legal nightmare. You have to decide what is best for the family you already have. Foster care is NOT the nightmare some folks want you to think it is. It's a shame your sister cant handle being an adult, or is to irresponsible to live up to what she got herself into. Do what is best for you and the kids you have now. Why should ALL of you suffer financially? dig deep in your own heart and you will know what to do.
