I'm too poor to have a second child. *edit to update* **edit 2**

Posted by   + Show Post
It hurts, but its the truth.
No matter how I figure it, the money just isn't there.
So today I went to the humane society and signed up to foster kittens that need bottle feeding.
What would you do?

**i got a call back from the humane society already. I will be picking up a litter of 3 kittens, supplies and 2 cases of formula on friday. Wish me luck!**
***there are so many replies suggesting I get government money, use a coupon, just have a baby anyhow and hope stuff works out or get a better job ect.
Perhaps I should have said "what would you do to relieve baby fever"
But all these suggestions honestly seem irresponsible and/or outrageous.
To clarify, I don't plan on having another child. I don't want to make the financial sacrifices and neither does my son.***

In all seriousness though I think it's really sweet that you are fostering the kittehs.  You get mad props for that.

It's all good.
Thank you for the apology.
I accept it, and apology if I crossed the line.

Pets cost more than kids in my experience! I don't get all these people saying they couldn't afford another kid so they got a pet!

yes! please do! I'm thinking about offering to foster kittens, but they most likely won't let me because of the cats we already have, they don't take too kindly to strangers :(

I don't get people who reply to a post without reading it.
