Do any of you have experience with foster care? I would like to hear about it. We are considering doing foster care. We have one adopted son and were going to adopt his sister, but the birth parents decided to raise her. We are devastated. When we calm down, we would like to do foster care of adoptable children and perhaps adopt one.
Hi Sandy, we too are a foster-adopt family. We have adopted two boys and will adopt our infant foster son in a few months. Our very first foster son who was 11 months old only stayed with us for three months and when we found out he was going to a family member we were crushed. Luckily we got our second foster son (14 months old) two weeks before he left and it really helped heal our hearts.

What a wonderful thing you want to do. In the State of New Hampshire there is a foster parent training program. They give you as much information to prepare you for different situations you may deal with and the possible abuse and neglect repercussions of that abuse the children will be going through. They do a home study, and background checks etc.
Foster care, I think is so much fun! My aunt does it and she loves it. I think its a great feeling to help a kid, letting them know someone loves them & teaching them new things. I hope I helped!! :)
