Yahoo!

I was in contact with the local Children and Youth office. They are going to get some information about becoming foster parents. I explained that our ultimate goal is adoption and that we are interested in fostering a very young child. The woman seemed excited to hear from me and more than happy to get the paperwork to me.

I know that this is going to be a challenging way to get to our ultimate goal. We could face kiddos with disabilities or with kiddos that could be taken from us to be reunified. Somehow, this feels right, though. I think my educational background will give us the upperhand when dealing with little ones in unfortunate situations.

I just have to keep my fingers crossed that the process goes smoothly and quickly.

Awesome! I'm so happy for you! Does your office do the MAPP or PRIDE classes before you can become a foster parent? Those were so helpful to us. I don't know how people did it before any training at all.

KUP on everything! I hope you get a first placement as easily and quickly as we did!

Honesly, Beth, I don't know. I just got a huge pack of paperwork in the mail this morning. We'll go to the informational meeting on the 8th of September and will hopefully have more information then.

I am the worst when it comes to being patient. I want everything NOW!
