    this breaks my heart. i have a foster brother and when people ask i forget that he’s not my blood brother sometimes. he’s not up for adoption so he will be going back home soon and i get tears in my eyes when i think ab it. we treat eachother like brother and sister even when it comes to sibling fights. he’s been with us for almost a year. my parents have ended up spending more money on him than me and i don’t care at all. he’s family. his real parents have already said that when he goes home we can pick him and and hang out any time. also who tf gets 700 dollars a month for foster care?? we get about 300 and that had to cover getting him all new clothes and the food he eats bc we don’t like the same things so ofc the dhr money goes to food he wants from the store and my parents pay for clothes, going out to eat, and any fun stuff we do on the weekends out of their pockets.
