I’m about to be a foster mom to a 17-year-old girl. I would like to add that there is particular need for people to foster teenagers (they have an unnecessarily bad reputation but the little kids one fosters will become teenagers, too). It’s also possible to take in 18–21 year olds who are aging out to be in more of a mentorship role than parenting per se. Thank you for addressing this important issue!
