My husband and I have decided after two years of trying to get pregnant on our own, to adopt through the foster care system. We live in southern Illinois and are going through the state of illinois to become licensed foster care providers. We have heard that it takes about 4-6 months to become licensed. We then will be put on a list, so if a child needs to be placed in foster care, then we can provide a home for them. We are wanting to foster/adopt children ages 0-3 boy or girl. We are so excited to start the process. Hopefully by the time christmas comes we will have a baby in the home. We also would love to have a sibling group of possible. Due to space I think we will be only licensed for two children.
Sooo, this is a blog about our journey through the foster care system. Becoming licensed, placements, and hopefully ending in adoption. We meet with our license worker for the first time on the 14th of this month. Needless to say we are SO EXCITED!!!!
