we have been a foster family for years. if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
don’t count on it being much additional income. most states pay very little reimbursement, often not enough to cover the additional monthly expenses – to say nothing of how much all the extra-curricular activities cost!
my kiddos are in little league, parks & rec, dance class, after school activities and piano lessons, and none of those are something that our state will reimburse for.
the rewards have to come from knowing you’ve made a positive difference in the life of a child – if only for the time that they’re in your home.
