Hello again! I haven't been around in a while. There was nothing happening for several months, so I took a little break to try to keep my mind off of it. We finally started our class with DCF in November, so we almost halfway through (yah!). We had our first home visit with our SW last week and it was great. I sent her an email this weekend and will see her at next week's class so I'll find out for sure from her, but in the meantime, I thought I'd just ask here to see what the norm has been for others.
We are getting licensed for an age group of 0-4 years old. Do they typically require you to have a crib in your house before you can get licensed? We got rid of our kids' pack-n-play and crib a couple of years ago and we probably wouldn't have been able to use the crib, anyway, because it was a drop-side. If we do need one, I want to start looking for one right away. I know Ikea sells some really inexpensive cribs, and I will check Freecycle and ask my friends. I hate to spend much money on a crib that we may never use, so the sooner I start the search (if necessary) the better.
Thanks for sharing your experience.
