like what they look for as in your house ,
the money you earn?
I'm glad that I foster adopted my beautiful daughter. It is alot of paper work and you do need to go through with the MAPP classes, but it's worth it. The adoption process does take awhile. If you do foster adoption, than you have to wait through all the court proceeding (on parental right, blah blah blah) and have a social worker come to your home 1x a month. Hang in there. Its' worth it.
Not worth it. Read my comment from Villageofone.
I think it is worth it. We have adopted out two children from foster care and it has been great. They were both infants when we adopted them. It does take a long time for some, but not for others. For my daughter it took almost a year and for my son it took almost 4yrs!
my daughter will be turning 8 this Friday. She has crossed alot of milestones and I'm so proud of her. How old are your children?
I adopted 3 boys through the foster parenting situations. We went through the same classes twice. ONce in Louisian and once in Georgia. I have no regrets. My boys are all grown now and doing quite well for themselves. We remain a close family.

"Something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read."
We make at least 3,485 decisions a day for our kids: what to feed them, how to dress them, which activities to try with them, how to discipline them … and that’s just before lunch time
