    Has anyone or is anyone fostering children right now? Single or partnered? Me and my roommate (both gay), live in a 3bdrm house and I was thinking about taking in a foster child. We both have our lives together and we think we can do this.

    Can anyone offer advice or suggestions?

    anything helps.

    (we are not dating).

    I am not a foster parent; I adopted my daughter thru a private agency, but here is information from HRC for you. Best of luck!

    LJ, we got our foster license and then got our children placed in our home. If you have questions, ask (via email). Bottom line, I would NOT recommend it with just a roommate. Becoming a foster parent is a ton of work, being a foster parent is daunting, and being on the same page as a partner, let alone a roommate, requires constant communication.
