I can't remember if I've updated or not, we are lic/ed. we had some calls but nothing worked out. well, in july, we got our first placement girls 5 and 6. they have visits twice a week w/mom and the family seems okay to us. we don't know wht the allegations are though. court for that isn't til sept 9th (the fact finding one) we've had some trouble w/the 6 yr old being a bit destructive but nothing too bad I suppose.

as for the adoption, no news on that front about one thru the SNAP committe and I have no idea if I should contact the snap specialist about it, our CM or try finding a dc and going from there.

we have an appt next week to llook at 15 or 12 pass van. thats about it.

Great to hear from you! What exciting news that you have these girls with you!

So are the girls a foster only placement? Or are the placed with you looking for an adoptive home possibly?

I'd contact the SNAP specialist and ask if she/he is the person you should contact about that or is there someone else who might be better. Get to know as many people at your agency/office as you possibly can. The more peopel that you know and recall your family and wants and such, the better the possibility of placements. Keep us posted on any developments and on the girls!!

thank you Beth and Jessa

well here is the email I sent her, doesn't sound as clear maybe as what you descibed Beth

hello Elizabeth,

My husband and I became foster to adopt parents/foster parents April 23, 2009. We are wanting to inquire about the login page for the unidentifiable children web pages/to search for an adoptable child.Its my understanding we need to be SNAP approved, in order to view the website? How would our names come up at the monthly meetings? Is it by need of the children, potential adoptive parents, both? Is there anything we can do to help the process?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you for your time and concideration

Should I email again w/the who do I contact? or would that be pushy?

we'll be meeting one of the SW's next week, the girls, I met a couple others at their "open house" but that wasn't a this is what we are hoping for thing. since we've had them they've only called us once about a sibling group we couldn't accept b/c we only have room for one more. I go to the foster parent support meetings but those are trainings and very little talking about adoption or foster parent stuff is done. I'll try to remember to do that as it comes about. big thing is, I don't want to alienate them but I don't want to be lost in the crack either. I get the impression unless its necessary they are more about RU which is fine, but for those kids who DO need a forever family, I would like to be able to inquire about those cases.

I did find out today when SW emailed me about visiting them and I asked about respite care for their court case, that it was dismissed b/c mom admitted they needed services at the facillitation meeting the other day. so their next review is in dec. so they'll be here awhile. Im glad I'll be able to ensure the 5 yr olds teeth gets fixed, we already go tthe 6yr olds done. but the 5 yr old whose bday we got to celebrate, hers needs outpatient surgery. I know thier mom wants to be there when that happens not sure Im comfortable taking her w/me but seeing her at the hospital might be okay. soon I'll be going winter clothes shopping and getting them coats.

Jessa they can keep you hopping. I have no problems falling asleep anymore lol. how are things?

Beth how are things in your world too?

Things are interesting here. Lil Buddy is scheduled to move home soon, but the workers in the county where he'd be moving are not "jumping up and down" about moving him at all. They don't like a lot of the plans that bio grandma has made and such, so we wait to see. Court is September 22. I hope something is decided by then so we can either start the transition home or start the TPR paperwork!! For goodness sake, he's been in foster care for over 2 years now. Poor Lil Buddy.
