I had to get loans to put myself through college, so did my dh. My mom barely helped me and dh's parents didn't help him. So, our kids can do the same thing. I'm sure we will help, but to what extent I don't know yet.

I would take the kids AND have more of my own. I know dh's brother almost had that happen a few years ago, but he had only 2 girls. The second I heard that child protective was going to get involved, I said we'd take them. It never happened. They cleaned up their act for the most part. But, I didn't give it a second thought. But, I also knew we'd definitely be having more.

We've got the house, the clothes, the toys. All that would be needed is food and college. College is something that they'll have to save for and pay for. Might sound harsh. But, that's how it is here.
