Hi. I'm Lynn. Age 35. I'm SAHM to my four biological children (13, almost 6, 3, and 7 weeks) and foster-adoptive mom to one little girl (age 11 months). My husband and I have been foster parents for a little over four years now. Our current foster daughter (whom we hope to be adopting soon) is our 13th foster child.
Our foster children have ranged in age from preemie to almost 13 years old. We try to keep our foster children younger than our oldest son - but we do make exceptions on a case by case basis. Our foster children have also come with a wide range of "baggage" from a preemie on oxygen, apnea monitor, and tons of medications to pre-teens with severe metal illness.
Looking forward to meeting other foster moms for the help and support!
