  • Is there a reason you aren't getting financial help? For foster kids you should. How old is the girl? Can you explain the truth to her? The truth, put delicately is usually the best choice.

  • Your should be getting all kinds of help for the fostor child. You need to call you local foster care office and find out why your not getting the help you should be. Then you need to think about, would you want to grow up without your bother or sister. These children only have eachother to grow up with. Take the little girl, too.

  • I agree those babies need each other. I know they arent little babies but still. They need someone to love them. U should be able to get some kind help. Please think about keeping them.
