If I am depressed of how life is going on nowadays, all I'm doing is just look around me. I can see then, the more less fortunate people, especially children. Seeing this scenarios, makes me somehow wish to be a foster family someday. Comparing to those homeless, I could say that we are more times blessed than them. I once experienced poverty, but we're given a chance to lift up our living. We're not that well-off family and am afraid I may not capable to do so. All I can do now is joining in our community charity services. Have you gone to feel the same? We're you been a foster family to others before? Or even wishing to do the same good deeds sometimes? Share your thoughts on this, thanks.

I feel sympathy for the people around the world suffering from all kinds of hardlife. I have also thought about fostering children from those communities. I have not done that so far. But, from time to time, I make donations to charity organizations (e.g. World Vision, American Redcross) which are working so hard to help those people. These Organizations know what the needs are and are in a position to provide the assistance most needed.

Simply intention to help would be a big thing for the less fortunates. And you're right, doing such donation giving would be of good purpose for it will go to not only a single person in need. And the sympathy that boost us to help could be as helpful for them just like serving as foster family for those in need. Thanks for your shared thoughts on this post.

I'm so sad when I see a homeless children or older in the street. I have some small action to help them as give money and some foods. I can not take care them during all their life. I wish I can help them more than now. The life is very important with us. So We live with all we have. Some idea to share with you Best regards.

Well actually, trinhktkt, much more we want to help others, but we have limited resources. But still believe in our intention to help, we could find ways to extend our hands for the purpose of giving. We could still help them in some other ways we can, if not be a foster family for them.

I have thought about it on many occasions. My boyfriend and I don't want children of our own, as he has a genetic condition which he's more than certain to pass on to any children that he might have. I could have a child with another father but I don't know how he would feel about that.

Your boyfriend must be a good and nice person. His concern is more of the benefit of the children rather than his own happiness. Yes, you may be capable to have it from another father, but it is nice of you considering his feeling too. There are lots of ways to have your own child, but make sure that it would not offended both your self esteem and most of your relationship. Besides you both have good intentions.
