      Lots of emphasis on the HEARTACHE
      (we’ve had a total of 26 foster children in our home over the past 4 years)

      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
      financially. Almost like a windfall.
