Anxiety

While in the military I had a few incidents that caused me to have a anxiety attack, I got out on a honorable and began to work.  I was fine, never had a anxiety attack until my brother died.  I was so sad, I felt so helpless.  He died of  Cancer age 39.  I spoke with my doctor and she perscribed 10 mg of Prozac.  The Pharmacy gave me 20 mg and I told my Doctor.  I took that mg for about 3 months then I choose to take 10 mg.  I have continued to take 10 mg and even 5 mgs,  for 2 years.   I have three young children and being a mom is all I ever wanted to be. I have recently decided to become a foster parent.  Me and my husband hope to adopt a little girl, through the foster care system.  Will this go against me in my application to become a foster mother?
