Foster Care Challenge
Your Sim/couple, for some reason (make up a story why), is unable to have kids but loves the idea of a big family. So the only solution is…. Adoption!!

Your Sim/couple’s goal is to adopt and raise as many children as possible throughout their young adult-elder lifetime.

*NO CHEATING. At all, whether you type it in or use a mod (unless the mod doesn’t give you an unfair advantage in gameplay) no cheats.
*However many total kids you adopt in one age group, you must adopt the same in the others. (i.e. if you adopt a total four babies, you must also adopt four toddlers, and four children too)
*You can either have a single sim or a couple (straight or gay). However they may not have ANY children of their own. You can’t, that’s why you’re adopting remember??
*Your “foster parent” Sim cannot have a regular job. They may have a part-time job only, or garden/paint/collect for money. HOWEVER if you have two sims, one may have a regular job. But the other may not.
*Have fun!!!

Getting Started
*You must start your character(s) in Young Adulthood with Family-Oriented as one of their traits. You can choose the others.
*You CANNOT move into a pre-made house. You can move into any sized lot that you would like and build your house however you want.
*Get a job (following the rule above!) of your choice.
*Adopt your first kid(s)!!!

Challenge Ends if…
*Any kid is taken by social worker
*Use of any cheat
*Any kid dies
*Foster Parent(s) dies.

+2 for each child raised to YA successfully
+3 for each toddler raised to YA successfully
+4 for each baby raised to YA successfully
+1 for each A earned
(can only earn once per sim per age group
i.e. Katie in elementary(point) and high school(point)
+1 for each Best Friend/BFF outside the family
+0.5 for each Best Friend/BFF inside the family
(cannot be used vice-versa i.e. Amy & George and George & Amy)
+1 for each boyfriend/girlfriend
+0.4 for each trait you are allowed to choose
+0.5 for each toddler skill taught
+1 for each skill a kid earns
+1 for every $7000 earned

Let me know if you have questions!!

I don't think adopting teenagers is even possible. Especially because they can't be taken away by social workers.

it would be pointless for them to be in care as they can cook and such.

Ummm, let me calculate. 48 months is 4 years, so 40 months is 3 years and 4 months, I think. You're welcome :D

I have decided this is one of my favorite challenges, besides Perfect Genetics & Do It As You Go, because I absolutely love the families I have from those two challenges.

Wow! I would definitely do this challenge! My sim has a MASSIVE family tree, and only 4 of the sims on there are actually adopted, so it'd be nice to have a completely adopted family. The only thing i'm concerned about is the population.

There was a stage in the family tree where my female sim ( Gigi Barrow ), had 12 kids. They weren't all 100% biological, with some being Gigi's siblings ( because of incest, which i'd rather not speak of lol. It wasn't intentional, promise! ). The population was full of relatives. I think like over half of the residents in the town were family members, and incest is disgusting so I didn't want to partake in that -again- lmao.

Anyway! I downloaded a mod, which I can't remember the name of, but i'll try post it here if I do find it, to help stop the population and let's just say it worked like a charm. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS CHALLENGE THOUGH! And I will definitely be doing it in the next generation of the family tree.

My family tree contains about 29 generations. I'm so sad wtf.
