Re: June 2017 - I am adopting/fostering or I want to adopt/foster

  • -What route (Foster Care adoption, domestic, international)? Foster Care

    -Where are you in the process right now (just thinking, home study, waiting for match, etc.) We did the home study yesterday and we have one more training session. Then it's just the paperwork to officially be licensed! Our licensing rep even said it's likely we'll get a placement right away because they have a couple of kids who might need to switch foster homes soon.

    -How are you feeling about the process right now? Pretty good. We really like the people we have been working with so far and they've made it pretty painless. The training sessions have been long, but definitely helpful. Mostly I'm just suddenly nervous about maybe getting a child any day now.

    -Any questions? I don't think so.

    -Any tips for the steps you’ve passed? I guess be prepared for scheduled meetings to not happen right on time. Our home study started an hour late because our licensing rep had been at court and of course that went late so she wasn't able to get to us on time. Stuff like that is probably pretty common, especially with the US government (maybe Canada is better?)

    -Anything else to add? Not at the moment
