Daily Dilemma: I’m A Single Woman & I Want To Foster Kids

Dear Rebecca and Burns,

I am a 42-year-old single woman, and it looks like marriage is not in my future. I’ve wanted to be a mom my whole life, so I’m looking into fostering and hopefully adoption. My mother told me that is robbing the kid of a two-parent family and that she wouldn’t feel like the child’s grandmother. I’m devastated.

Am I wrong for wanting to give a child a home?
