My DH and I have 3 bio DDs and planned to adopt 2-3 boys via foster care. We were licensed 21 mos ago and got our first placement that day--2 toddler boys. We still have them. Plus, they were joined by their 13 mos and 6 wk old bio sisters at 9 days and 7 days old, respectively. We are just starting the home study process to adopt them.(our newborn is not actually free for adoption, yet.) Our plan was to be foster parents for a while and adopt one day if the right situation presented itself. We never imagined we would end up adopting the first children we took in. Their adoptions are supposed to be finalized this summer. They already feel like ours so we're all very eager for it to finally be legal.
that sounds incredibly awesome. So you have four foster (soon to be adopted) kids very young close together? sounds fun and exhausting! I thought one of my kids bmoms would have ended up having another one (who would almost certainly be brought into care) but none so far. I also was able to adopt my first placement (and third) and i'm very glad not to have to experience keeping a child for a year or two and then returning him (esp since it wouldnt have been a good situation for the child in either case.) The one foster child i did have (for just two months) was given to relatives which i was fine with. So now you have FIVE girls and two boys?? So much for making things even. :P
