We are foster parents who are being considered for a sibling group, ages 4, 3, and possibly 4 months. The 3 year old is on the autism spectrum, but they are unsure where, only being sure that he is very high functioning. I have 3 bio children, ages 9, 7, and 5. We are very interested in adopting this group, but unsure if it would be a mistake. Can we possibly be good parents to all 6 of these children, when one has autism? Can we give them each enough attention? Would it be fair to the kids to take in a child with autism?
