      I think you may be misunderstanding me. I was in the process of

      becoming a foster parent when I found out I was pregnant. The

      original email which started this conversation, and additional emails

      which followed by the OP, spoke on how having foster children would

      help her budget. I get that you will be given $ to help with the

      costs of accepting another child in your household. I don’t believe

      that anyone who commented was talking about that. We were talkinga

      bout the fact that 1. it is likely that a family will spend MORE than

      what they receive from the government in order to take care of that

      child. 2. I can’t imagine that I would take on the responsiblity of

      accepting a child into my household because I’m going to benefit

      financially. Almost like a windfall.
