      From what I have witnessed with my friends who have done this… (more than one family)

      The amount earned from foster parenting barely covers the cost of the child if that. Most of my friends ended up spending above and beyond the amount paid by the state. It's awesome to take in a kid, but don't look at it as a way to add income to your budget.

      To help our budget plus give a home to a needed child we are going to

      be foster parents. We have our first appoinment in August then a home

      visit and then the training. So we might have a little one to fill our

      empty house before Christmas.

      My kids are all grown up and have their own kids so we have an empty

      house and since I am at home its a very quiet house. I miss my kids

      being little and doing family things and so we have a chance to be a

      busy family again for a child in need.

      I am anxious to see what age child we get and relearn everything about

      being a mom to a young one again. I figured since I have grandkids I am

      used to being around the little ones too. My daughter lived with us

      till recently with her 2 children, which now she has her 3rd.

      My husband and I are looking forward to our future.
