Hello! I am back after almost a year. Last August, we began what KY calls PS-MAPP training for fostering/adoption. A few of our classmates were certified after we graduated in October but a majority of us hadn't heard anything since last month. Apparently, Kentucky's Family Cabinet had been putting children in homes with predators or people that failed to mention things on their applications and slipped through the cracks. Unfortunately dh and I were among many families that fell through the cracks waiting for nearly a year.
Last week our case worker came to visit and told us she'd just got to our file and that she should have our case ready for approval by 09/02/10 (today). Next week our case will be approved by her supervisors and we will receive our acceptance packets. Then we should be on the road to adoption. My husband and I both have some fertility issues and aren't able to have children naturally, so for us this was our last chance. It's been a very emotional year and it finally feels like things are looking up. So now I'm looking for forums and support groups to help us along our wayand prepare us for the second stage of the beautiful journey
