Hi Jackie, my mom was once a foster parent. At first, she was raising us six sons until two of us remained at home. She had always told me that she also wanted a girl or some girls. Well, she finally got her wish. She and my step-father had qualified to start raising three foster girls that were sisters. They were aged like, 14, 12 and 10. I was happy for my mom. She had gotten her wish and more than she could bargain for. She seemed to enjoy combing their hair, making them go to school and church and teaching them to be good girls. My mom did a good job with us boys and them. She had about three different sets of girls and boys for more than twenty years. Many times, I ended up being big brother to the foster children.
