If you are infertile and believe that your are on the brink of feeling that you will never have children of your own maybe it's time to start thinking about fostering a child instead. There are so many children out there in need of a home, especially teenagers. Most of the kids in foster care today are teenagers and the younger kids are usually snatched up by relatives. Fostering a teenager is extremely hard work but it is so worth it in the end. I'm living proof. (I'm a much stronger person because I went through it.) It won't feel like it at the time but your teenagers will grow into young adults and will eventually tell you how much they appreciated all that you did even when they were monsters to you. That you didn't give up on them and that now they are able to live somewhat normal lives because of all the hard work and love that you put in to help these troubled kids out. Even though you may think they ignore and don't notice all that you do, they do, they remember, they love you for it. It just takes them a long time to admit it, like 6 or 7 years later, but they do and when they do it feels like a million bucks. So when the social worker asks you what age group, try to say "Yes" to a teenager instead of saying no out of fear. You could make a difference in a kids life today. If I can do it, so can you.
