So, after SEVERAL hours of cleaning our house, we had our first interview with the foster care license worker. She was extremely nice and helpful. She said we could foster upt to two children at one time! Yeah! So we have to get a crib and a twin bed. We have several papers to fill out and hopefully on the 26th of this month we can start PRIDE classes. PRIDE is a nine week course that we have to do to become foster parents. So we meet once a week for three hours. So hopefully we will have little guests with us for christmas this year. We told Ryan’s parents and they are excited as we are. I just want to dive right in and do all that I can to get things rolling. So we told the Caseworker(CW) that we would like to take boy/girls ages 0-5 years old, any race and low to moderate needs. We told her that our ultimate goal was to to adopt and she said that many children that come into foster care become eligible for adoption after some time. I know that is is a great risk that we are taking by opening our heart and home to children that may or may not stay with us, but it is a risk we will take, so that some day we will find our children and complete our family.
