Foster parenting updates!

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Our case worker just emailed me. We have our first two home study appointments set up! In spite of the name, these two are actually conducted at the Archdiocese. The third is in our home. We have one on 4/30 and the other in mid-May. I am so nervous!

We both feel that bringing a child into our home while I am on bedrest wouldnt be an ideal situation (even if CSS said it was okay). What we would prefer is to complete as much of our training as we can and then go on an "inactive" status. We will discuss this in person with our case worker on the 30th. And, by that point, we will have more information.

I'm relieved that you are doing this all as 'prep work', so that when your life becomes increasingly busy (or not, due to bedrest) you will have it behind you. I cannot imagine adding foster care to your plate with the pregnancy and the babies.
Nonetheless, you are a saint for doing all this. I hope you know that.
