Maybe a close friend would adopt him so you could see him all the time.

He's sure a cutie. I know how easy it is to love your fosters, but just think about how many more dogs like him that you can help if you let him go to a different home where he will be loved and cherished. If you keep him, you probably won't be able to foster any more dogs like him that deserve a chance. Of course, if you decide to keep him he'll have a great home.

Personally, I would just want to meet the family and ask that they send updates, but I would let him get adopted because I would want to keep helping more. The first is the hardest, but it won't be easy to give any of them up. My last foster would have been perfect for our family (and we were looking for a dog), but I had already had a few people email about her within a few days, and I had committed to bringing her to the event. She got adopted by a family that week that loved her and as hard as it was for me to give her up, now we have Boo, who couldn't have been a better choice.

I know you'll make the best decision, good luck with whatever you decide to do.

He sure is a cutie pie. Follow your heart! Fostering is always very tough.

I am trying to get the best of both worlds and find someone I know that will adopt him
Well, they don't have to receive an announcement in the mail if you decide to keep him. You could just let them go on thinking he's still being fostered, and that the rescue is paying his expenses.

You all make very good points.

I have decided to just wait it out and IF he finds a home, then it was meant to be, and if not, then he belongs here.
