Re: Alternative parenting decisions ever a problem for foster/adoption?

I dont think any of those things automatically disqualify you as long as you are ok with parenting a kid the way someone else wants you to temporarily in some ways. If youre not ok with that, thats what would disqualify you from foster/adopt. Its not your kid until finalization.

I think it varies quite a bit between counties so if you are interested you will have to inquire about those things. I am getting concerned about the vaxxing thing though we have a semi-valid medical reason so im crossing my fingers it will be ok. The rest i dont really think is relevent, besides cosleeping, but many counties are ok with it just not bedsharing which is a small compromise in my mind.

Thank you all for sharing.
My husband and I have talked about adopting. I am unsure as to how long the process takes however. . For those of you who foster/adopt can I ask more about your stories/process?
I actually just posted a thread stating I wouldn't be able to foster, but maybe I am ignorant on the issue! Do you always run the risk of being unable to adopt your foster child? That is what seemed the hardest to me; loving and raising a child and then being forced to release the child into a situation that you may not agree with/feel good about.

Thanks for sharing!
