Hello! Thought it was about time to stop being a lurker. Originally my H and I were going to become foster parents back in 2012. After a nightmare year at my job, we put our plans on hold. We did a lot of soul searching and decided that fostering was not the best route for us at this time. We switched gears redid all of our paperwork through an agency and are currently about 2 weeks away from our official approval. Our hope is to adopt an older child (between 6-12) from the foster care program.
