Re: considering adoption and confused

My husband and I have discussed foster to adopt, but I don't know if it would work for our family currently. I would really worry about how it would effect our other children, particularly our oldest, if we were to be placed with a child and then end up losing him/her. As much as I would like to help a child in need, I also really need to consider the children we already have.
My youngest was in the NICU, and that was very hard for my daughter, just explaining to her that we had to wait for the baby to come home.
If there were no other option, I would look at the foster route, but I think the best fit for our family would be an adoption.
