A family situation has arisen that leaves a ten year old boy in the balance. We have a 10 year old boy and a 6 year old girl.
I am worried about the implications of taking this child in and raising him as one of our own. We have just come through a rough year and are gently getting to our feet. I know we are not perfect parents, but also realise that the stability we have to offer may be all that he needs.
The financial implications are not a worry as the entire extended family would "help out", I am more worried about the emotional implications, for us as well as this child. (He is presently living with grandparents as his mother is not interested.)
Any advice would be helpful.
