A good friend of mine, P, owns her own drop in, hourly, daycare center. She also adopted 4 of her 5 kids from the foster care system. She believes husband and I would make good foster care parents. She sees the way we are with her kids, and the way we are with manster. One benefit would be that husband could afford to continue being stay at home dad. It would give us an avenue towards staying afloat. I really do believe we could add a lot to a child in terms of providing consistency and love and goodness knows manster has trained us to deal with difficult children. The challenges are evident and manster's well being and adjustment to it is paramount. But we are considering it. Just one kid, a couple years younger than manster. He needs to remain top dog and also, he's passive and we wouldn't want a stronger, more "influential" kid with us. What do you think? Has anyone done this and are we crazy to be considering it?
