Re: are there any other....

Melissa, I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

I hope you guys can find a healthy living situation for everyone involved.

I am glad your friend had a good experience. A lot of people do. But a lot people don't as well. Its not about how good it feels, it's about doing the right thing. And that is what we are trying to do.
I dont know that any fostering situation affords a good experience because of what must have led up to the placement of a child outside their home.

I think she would agree with you about doing the right thing. Her current foster son was the kid no one wanted because he was born with a hole in his head and addicted to narcotics. I watched my friend struggle through it as well as find the joys in it.

Same token, this same parent has also had children removed from her home when they have become a threat to the other children living there.

I dont critisize you or the choices you make to protect the other children in your care. Im a mom-cant blame you there at all. I guess I wanted to know that there was something proactive being done for the good of everyone involved.

Best to you and yours.
