DH and I have thought about this for the past few years, and now I am wondering if I should get the ball rolling. I was hoping to get some POV from others that have BTDT or maybe just have knowledge of foster parenting.
The main reasons I was going to wait were: Fear of the parents of the children we were fostering would wish ill upon us, most worried about safety of our son. I do not even know if this is a "real" concern just something that scared me.
What would we do with the child if we went on vacation out of city/state?
We would only like under 3 since I think it would be easier for our son (he is 8) is that possible?
I am considering it more now than later because I nanny in the morning and watch kids part time out of my home. I feel like i have kids here all the time, and I looked up the income for fostering and I think I could come out around the same if I just foster. Is it pretty steady, or could I go months without income?
Any other things you can think of that I should think about? Thank you SO much!!!
