i am becky 22 married to my first true love drew he is 33 we have two handsome boy together. anyways since i was 15 i have been wanted to become a foster parent some day. I know i have two kids but foster children need people that love and care for them too. But i never had that while i was in foster homes or adopted. BUT OF COURSE NOW I DO. lol anyways, i don't really know the age that you have to be to become a foster parent, but i know we aren't ready yet, mainly cause i went thou alot after i had my second son last year. plus we are living off fix income. one day i am hoping to be able to become a foster mother that can give any child my love including mine. which i already do. they are my world.... well i hope to read some amazing adoption stories on here. cause mine wasn't good.

take care everyone

Welcome to our board. I am so sorry to hear that your adoption story was not good. That honestly breaks my heart. My childhood was interesting, to say the least, and I wouldn't wish that sort of chaos, doubt or pain on any child. It's easy to tell that you love your boys very much and I am glad that you have found/made your true family now!

My name is Jessa. DH is Blake. We're both 30 years old and are in the process of adopting our (first) child from foster care. Please KUP on your journey!!
Jessa, married to Blake these past fourteen years. Beginning the adoption process.

Hi! Welcome to the board! I'm Beth. DH and I are 28 (well, I'm almost 28) and we have one bio daughter living and one bio son who passed away at birth. We became foster parents last year and have had our sweet foster son since July 08. We do really hope to adopt him, but he may get reunited with his father's family who have recently surfaced and are just starting their plan.

I've always wanted to be a foster mother and adopt as well. I hope we can continue to do it for a long time.

If you don't mind my asking, you hold a unique view as a former foster child who was adopted. Could you (maybe in a different post) let us know of some things as foster familys/adoptive familes that were really helpful or really hurtful to you?

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!
