I am new on this group as well. I am feeling very guility.
My husband and I are struggeling to have children so we decided to do foster care, which I feel was a mistake. Or that is how I feel and I know it is a terrible thing to say. She is ok for a child that was rejected and she does try very hard, but she just doesn't fill the need of a own child. She struggles a bit with things she shouldn't really be with but she has come a long way from where she has been and that is why I am feeling very guiltly. Maybe we should have gone for someone younger as she was already 9 when she come to stay with us. Any advice?

I am new to the page- hello to everyone. I am just venting. My bio son was violently attacked by our FS and we asked that the FS be removed for our safey. I'm having so many mixed emotions. It doen't help that they can't find anyone willing to take a violent child. I feel trapped and guilty.
