Well, we finished our PRIDE Training on Saturday (it was in fact only 2 full Saturdays ... 14 hours) and now we move into the licensing phase.. the shortened PRIDE Training is basically to help weed out people.
We were told that the licensing process takes between 6-8 weeks. So, now onto our Home Study, Background Checks, and Physicals... eeek!!
We've decided to do Foster Care and if the child becomes available for adoption then we would be open to that prospect. I can't bring myself to have meetings with a child for adoption and have it fall through. I figure it will be less painful for everyone if we just go into it as Foster Parents.. assuming they will go back to their BPs.
