Not having any kids - foster or otherwise - I can't provide anything
useful. But I admire your wanting to do it! I think if you want to, you
can do a good job.

Subject: [CHAT] Advice-totally off topic

Because I value your opinions and experience, I would like some advice
from
all of you great people.

For a couple of years now I have considered off and on possibly adopting
or at
least fostering a child. ONE child. I know my limits and I do not think
I
could handle more than one. Also, I am speaking of an older child. No
babies.
If I wanted a baby I would have had one. Anyway-there are hundreds that
need
homes just in S.C.

Recently, my consideration has taken a turn more towards a "I think I
really
want to do this" attitude. I would like to have a family and I don't
think
waiting around on a divorced man with children is the way to go about
it.
Anyway-I've spoken with some close friends who have three adopted
children and
they've given me some great advice, but I value your opinions as well.

At the moment I am not financially ready, even though I know the state
helps.
They help to the tune of about $300 a month here which is nothing.

So, advice, opinions, experiences, etc. All would be welcome, good or
bad,
yes, or no.

I am giving myself a year to get ready. Unless I change my mind and I
don't
think I will, hopefully by this time next year I'll at least be
fostering.

Cheers!
A
