We received our packet in the mail for Foster Parenting this weekend. It was very exciting! The best part is that the agency we want to work with "values diversity in all areas including gender, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation." I am so excited about that! It is great to be able to work with an agency that will value us for who we are and not judge us because of our lifestyle!
So, we dropped our initial Interest Survey in the mail today and have sent an email to sign up for the first two modules of training on February 21. The ball is rolling, and we are excited about it! Keep your fingers crossed that things go smoothly for us throughout the process.
From the research we have done so far, we need to do the following:
1. Background/Fingerprint check
2. Doctor's Statement saying we are physically able to care for a child
4. Home Study
5. Fire/Safety inspection of home
6. 21 - 24 hours of training to get licensed
We'll keep you posted.
