I would love for people to get facts before they state "over heard truths". Most kids are in FC because of the parents and not the child. I can personally say my husband and I didn't think oh wow free labor or let us abuse these kids more. We get temp placement while they wait for their bio FAM completes their home study. We have an age cut off also which is 5 y/o. We don't foster anymore, I needed a break but there are some great families out there. Yes there are bad foster homes but there are evil people everywhere. Sorry I had to vent about what I have seen on CM

 Vent away! I know how Foster care can be and there are great parents who really want to help the child while the parent gets the help they need and then there are some who look at the kids and see a pay check. I was asked to foster and I am thinking about it. I love kids and I want to help them with a loving place to feel safe.

Hugs~

 I'm a foster/adopt parent. Like Dana...I can't straight foster because I'd want to keep them all so I take in children who have already had parental rights terminated or who will as soon as a family is identified. We take in the most difficult kids and ones who are not easy to place due to behaviors or disabilities. I don't do this for the money...I do it simply because I love kids. Good/bad/clean/dirty/ they all need love and for someone to believe in them.
