I have an idea for those who have lost income. If you think that it is something that you can handle, take in some foster children. There are so many kids that need a home. The more difficult the child, the greater the level of support they give you. I know that this is not for everyone. However, I did it, and took in two troubled siblings, 7 and 10 years old. That was 11 years ago. I eventually adopted my daughter and son, and we have a beautiful little family. While most people struggle with the costs of raising children, I was paid a fair wage for raising mine. It wasn't easy - not even!, But I love them both and they are now great kids. I was still given ample support even after they were adopted. Not only did it help my situation, it helped theirs. They were considered "unadoptable".

I'm not sharing this to toot my own horn, I'm just saying that for some people, this may be a solution they hadn't thought of. There is training and licensing involved, but it isn't as difficult as you might think.

Life is short -- slow down. Why race to the end?
