The more and more I think about it, the more I really would like to foster when our children are older, maybe even out of the house. My aunt's family (through marriage) has fostered for 30+ years, and their family is this huge, extended loving household. It touches my heart to see how many lives they have touched! They had their struggles of course, and they say it is not easy (they usually did tween/teenagers) but they said the rewards out way the struggles. What was your deciding factor, did you always know?
