      Yeah, but it’s anything BUT a windfall. It’s actuallyhard work, pain, heartachesometimes. I realize most states can not afford to make it financially rewarding. But if there was a way it should be done.

      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.
