I am looking for help!!! I am taking in a 15yo girl that has been a friend of my daughters since they were 8... I have been asked by her family to take her in with me and my children... The problem I have is they are asking me how much I want them to send every month to raise her... I honestly don't know how much to tell them so I am asking for help!!! They are having there lawyer draw up paper work and a power of attorney so if I have to take her to the doctor or enroll her in school I can. (They live out of state). They will also provide insurance for her. Thanks,Mat

Why isn't she living with her family? Does she have any special needs?

Yeah, I would find out what the foster care rate for teens is in your state.  Seems like a good place to start.
