My husband and I were trying to adopt for about two years when we were contacted by the state and asked to be foster parents for a kinship placement. We decided to go for it and now I'm feeling really overwhelmed. It's a sibling group boy 2, girl 3. I've never been so discouraged, yelled so often, and I can't stand the bio-parents anymore... even though I know them personally.
Is this normal adjustment or am I crazy? I live in a rural area (2.5 to 3 hours from the nearest urban area) so we don't have any support groups or foster parenting networks here.... I just need to talk to other parent in similar situations. I don't feel like a normal parent anymore!
