RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
The recommendation is to only take children younger than your own, and though out of kindness you may want to accept the first call you get, but for the safety of your family it is good to stick to the child younger than your own, and know well the circumstances they are coming from. And I don't want to paint too negative a picture, because many of these kids are very good kids just in a tough spot, while some are severely damaged, mental illness, drug affect, PTSD, RAD, and the list goes on. Don't do it for an income. I don't know the subsidy now, sounds like it is significantly more than when we were doing foster care, but we paid out of our own pocket to put them in a child development program.
