hello! I know this board is quiet but I gotta wanted to post anyway. Iíve been a member here since I was pregnant with my oldest. We have 3 biological kids and are starting the process of becoming foster parents. We filled out the paperwork, been fingerprinted, background checks, child abuse clearance, physical, became certified mandated reporters, got our references and all the other forms and info we need. Next the agncey reviews it and then weíll have our class and home check. Iím excited and nervous to do foster care but it isnít about me. Iíve wanted to adopt for as long as I can remember but after reading and chatting with adoptees Iíve learned so much and itís changed how I feel about things. I donít feel right doing a from birth adoption, so I took that off my list of options. Weíve decided on foster care with the possibiltiy of adopting but only after strongly working toward reunification with the parents or It no other family is found. We are fostering children from ages 0-8. So right now, the plan is foster care with a focus of reunification. Anyone else do foster care? What was your experience?
