Making a difference in a child's life is my stabb at immortality. If I can change this child's direction in life then I've made life better not only for him but his future children. The work I'm doing can effect generations for years to come. Is there any other job more significant?

I keep teenage boys and it's an adventure. There's never a dull moment in my house but it's definatley worth it. I take a class a significant distance away from my home but am usually back before the boys are out of school. Last week I stayed in town awhile and was pleasantly surprised when my 16 year old called and asked," are you still in L. A.?" I said, "Yes, why?" He replied,"well your usually home by now". I said, "Yeah but I decided to stay awhle." He Said,"Fine then" in his most sarcastic voice. I was blown away. Day in and day out you go through this routine not Knowing if anybody cares and the moment you step away they miss you. It's awsome.

You should check into it QT... I have had several friends who are foster parents and they have said numerous times how rewarding it is to be able to help a child who life has cast aside as garbage or useless. We had a family in our church in South Louisiana years ago who had 5 kids of their own and raised 7 foster kids. You could not tell which were foster kids and which were their real kids. It was truly a house of love.

Zbig and Kat, hats off to both of you. This is an idea i have toyed with doing myself. I would be interested in hearing more about both of your experiences.

Zbig, I too am a single foster parent. I did eventually adopt a little girl a few years ago from the fostercare system. I applaud you...I know the many struggles and yet rewards it offers.

You are so correct.... nothing could be more rewarding! A hundred years from now, it will not matter how much money you made, what kind of house you lived in or what kind of car you drove, but what does matter is if you touched the life of a child. Keep it up!
