Re: My sister's child needs a home.
A lot of moms feel this way with subsequent children...totally normal. And I get that you have a plan for your family, but could you live with yourself knowing that this little girl who sounds like she already has a pretty crappy life goes to some stranger in foster care? What her mom has done in the past is not her fault..she is an innocent child who needs a family to love her. Honestly if it were me I wouldn't think twice in adopting her. There are many families who adopt and love children they never "knew" very well.
