We've had our first two foster kiddos since last July and it looks like they'll be going home later this year So bittersweet, we're mega attached.
Tomorrow we are getting kiddo #3 (no relation to the other two). She's 5 and we know quite a bit about her because she's coming from a relative placement that we are acquaintances with.
We talked to her on the phone tonight and she said she can't wait to meet us. Any advice for things to do/not do the first day/night with an older kiddo are greatly appreciated.
Of course I called my mom earlier who told me we're nuts and she doesn't understand why we would take a 3rd child because she can't imagine taking care of 3 kids that didn't "belong to her." Sometimes I wish she could be more encouraging.
TTC since November 2009.
Currently licensed foster parents with the hope of adopting! Also pursuing pregnancy through IUI! First IUI scheduled 10/3/13
Currently loving our placements:
