I guess that depends one what you mean by "fair". Will you need to spend extra time with your child that has autism? probably, he may need to be transported to therapies and require more attention. Six kids is alot, hands down. Whether any are differently abled or not, that's a lot of children and your older three can expect to lose some time with you. You will have to deal with adjustment and attachment issues with all three regardless of autism or not. IMO, autism would be less of a concern than taking on three foster kids and having a total of children in my home. I guess I am having a hard time answering your question because I am not sure what to say. I'm not sure that I see why having an autistic family member would be considered unfair to the nonautistic family members.
Rhu - mother,grandmother,daughter,sister,friend-foster,adoptive,and biological;not necessarily in that order. Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way (Jimmy Buffet)
