THEN, you read a book like this and you're like "HO SHIT, IF I GET A FOSTER KID THEY WILL MAKE ANOTHER KID STICK TOYS UP THEIR VAGINAS"

This book made me think that Rebecca (of fosterhood) had it right when she decided to only take in three kids, one at a time, and provide for their support. Although I admire people who feel the calling to take in children without homes, Kathy's experiences didn't make me admire her or her family. It simply made me wish that she had "stopped at six" and spared some of her other foster kids. Not a bad book, and certainly not a bad home/family, but her lack of control over "Sara" (the abuser) and the constant references to "only $15 per day per kid" left me feeling a little uneasy.
