This doesn't sound like what you mean by fostering. It sounds to me as though you are thinking of getting a second rabbit to keep yours company. In spite of what some of the online pet websites tell you, this is not necessary as long as you give your rabbits a reasonable amount of attention. Rabbits often do not get along with other rabbits. The females tend to be territorial, and the males tend to fight for dominance. Rabbits need a great deal of room if they are to cohabit without serious fighting, and even then there are no guarantees. A female rabbit will usually tolerate a daughter raised with her from birth, but even then there can be tension if their personalities are not compatible.
It is sometimes suggested to spay or neuter the rabbits, and in many cases, this does reduce the aggression, but it is expensive and can be risky surgery for rabbits.
Quite honestly, I think you and your one rabbit are likely better off just keeping it simple and enjoying each other's company.
