I really want to be a foster parent, but right now I am only 19, and you have to be 21. I've been thinking about it a lot lately. I want to do it so I can someday adopt.

    I would want to, but foster home isnt permanent and I think it would be hard to let a child go if you had a good relationship with them.

    My parents used to be foster parents to other children and yes, it's very difficult to say good-bye, but 9/10 times you keep in touch with the children. And not to mention, if you become a foster parent you should be doing it to better the lives of children. To give them a safe and loving place to call home, even if it is temporary. And you can even pick which kids you want, (ones who stay longer (adoption), age, gender, etc...) And a foster home could very well be a permanent situation. It depends on each case. I have a lot more to say on this but, I'll stop. My comment is probably long enough lol. Contact me if you want to know more. But I do want to add that becoming a FP isn't for everyone... You have to have the right kind of heart to do it.
