We chose foster adoption because of the huge number of children needing homes here in the U.S. We also wanted to adopt an 'older' child because there is such a need for famlies for these kids, and many just grow up in foster care moving froim home to home. Those moves do almost as much damage emotionally (if not more) than the abuse and/or neglect. They learn they can never count on anyone. Sorry for rambling here...
Though I woudn't say we were comfortable with the risk of attaching to a child and then losing her, we somehow accepted it. Still, we asked for a very low-risk situation and that is what we got. The court was ready to terminate the birth parents' fights, but they will not actually do that (generally) until an adoptive family is identified. The rights were terminated three months after she was placed with us. Personally, I highly recommend foster adoption.
