i dont know if its just in my state, but i know someone who just took in 2 foster kids and gets paid $800 each for them. i work at my job and i dont hardly make that much and im having 2 kids too. so why would they pay so much ? Is taking in foster kids suppost to take the place of having a job? i sure dont spend $800 a month on my kids, what is this money suppost to go to?
