I have had alot of wild mice as pets and they have loved it so I don't see anything wrong with it You really should not release a hand raised mouse back into the wild. They rarely survive. They are very happy as pets, even if they are alone. Wild Mice are perfectly fine for having as pets! If you orphan them look up a good formula to feed them though :D
