f**k me you're brave. We thought about that once. Well I did but in hindsight she was right. Takes a tough sort to do that as I'm sure you'll agree.
Well done you btw.
yeah, we've had them for many years now, oldest are heading into their 30's now, most are great once they settle in although that's not to say there haven't been occasions in the past when i've questioned why especially after the issues we've had with one or two. one punched me then went outside, climbed onto the garage roof and repeatedly punched himself in the face once i called the police, then once they arrive he climbed down and tried to claim i'd hit him, luckily the policeman who arrived already "knew" this kid and after checking my knuckles (and his) and getting quick witness statements from others present he told the kid he was arresting him, for his trouble he got thrown down the stairs and it took 4 officers to finally drag him out of the house, he didn't come back
another decided to grab a kitchen knife and chase me around the house, but most are brilliant. got to say that overall it's worth it, the only really bad part is all the highly intrusive checks they carry out on you, your home, your family, your friends, any visitors who may stay and such.
