In the past I fostered and adopted with my (now ex) husband a sibling group. I get a state subsidy and now child support, and this is what we live on right now as far as income because I have been a stay at home mom since we started fostering them years ago. I school at home my children, so I plan to go back to work in a few years when they can do school more independently.
My question is can a single parent become a foster parent? And if so, do you think they will consider me financially stable enough to foster again? I know I have the room, and even though I moved, I know what modifications (baby/toddler safety) I would have to do the house in order to prepare for that age group. I just don't know if it would even be an option. I don't know that I want to adopt again as a single parent, but I would enjoy fostering, even if just for short stays to give another foster parent a break.
