Will you -or- Are you considering adoption or foster care? Um, I think I would consider foster care when my kids are older and if I have the room for it!

    I have 2 kids I want 3 kids, MAYBE 4 4 kids in my family and 5 in DH's family No, I haven't really considered adoption or foster care. If I did ever consider it, it would obviously be when my kids are older and less needy. We had newborn foster babies in my family when I was a kid, they were so precious.

    How many kids do you have? 1 How many kids do you want? I wanted 2, but we might just stick with one...she's a doosie! How many siblings do you and SO have? I'm the oldest of 4, DH is the youngest of 3 Will you -or- Are you considering adoption or foster care? Since DH is adopted, we've talked about it, but it's not an option right now. I'd love to foster later in life.
