Oh yeah, we get that a lot too. Especially since we went forward with our foster classes after our son died. People had that idea that we were only going to foster because our son had died or we "couldn't" have more biological children. When we got pregnant with Daniel and he was born I can't tell you how many people have said, "Oh good, now you can stop that foster care stuff." Umm... no... that has nothing to do with why we are foster parents or why we want to adopt.
But then, I know it is because those folks have never felt called to adopt at all. If they were... if they thought of adoption as I did, they'd never say something like that. So I take it all with a grain of salt and always make sure to say how we WANT to foster and we are BLESSED to do it and will continue to do it as long as we can.
