Just wanted to say that life in a foster home can actually be alot of fun, and a relief for many children. No doubt many of our former foster kids had a great time here, and we loved having them



All situations are different.

You did what you knew to be right, you put the childrens well being before your own needs. There is no guilt for you to feel, in fact it is the opposite. Your sister should be embarrassed you needed to do such a thing.

I am proud of you, and suspect your sister may thank you one day

Mike

You totally did the right thing man!
Sure she was family, but she was hurting the boys, and the guilt from not telling anyone would have been far worse than the guilt of telling social services.
You did the right thing, and now hopefully they will be able to help your sister as well, and help her confront her demons

You did the right thing. I wish someone had done the same for me. You are a hero! When I was alone with mom there was nobody left to help me. You did the right thing, the honerable thing. You helped your sister in the long run.
