My kiddo was suppose to be adopt only but due to the circumstances we ended up fostering for awhile-never planned on being a foster parent but ended up doing it--we just planned on adopting--

I did foster parenting for several years.  Adopted our SN son.  We've had quite a variety and it's really tough work.  Not doing it anymore because of a pending move out of state.

Nope, and I wouldn't be for all the money in the world.

My own autistic Chibi and my own medical issues are more than enough for me.  Plus, I'm not a big fan of children in general.  In general.  I love my kids, my friends kids and some of my kid's friends, but mostly I could do without them.

No , we do resparte care, ( if a foster fmaily has a vaca ir an emwragnvy the kids come stay over. but once our daughter is bout 6 we will sart to.do foster care . I was a foster child in and out of system my whole child hood. My mom ( adapted mom) still is. Foster caring. Se adapted me and my four siblings . Us older two kids were bout to turn 18. So right now there's a total of 6 kids in our family ( she has one bio son) and is planning on adapting the 3 fosters se has now. We love our family and I couldn't ask for a more amazing mommy!!!! My two younger siblings are special needs youngest sis has mr and mild cp and my youngest brother has a chromosome 2 partial deletion and austism. Then the 3 fosters all have ADHD, sleeping disorder, and the middle child has a learning disability .
