Starting a group home for foster children can be incredibly rewarding. Both emotionally, spiritually and financially. However, it can also be sad, as often you will build a bond with the child who will usually only live at the foster home temporarily.
Although you may be interested in starting a foster home, you might be wondering why there is such a significant need or demand for foster homes. The answer is simple. Many people have children without taking the time to consider what needs they will have and if they can sufficiently caring for the children. If the children are not able to remain safely at their house with mom and dad, the state department will provide the child with an alternative family that will take care of them. This could be your family and home!
