We’ve changed our course a bit. Instead of working with Antioch, we are going straight to the state. We’ve connected with a lady from Fostering Together, who is helping us get our paperwork ready to submit. Our first steps are to complete an application, background checks, finger print authorizations, medical forms, financial and marital history as well as a fire evacuation plan. Luckily I have saved copies, so some of this is already done.
At this time we’re not planning on getting foster licensed. We’ve been told we don’t need to in order to adopt waiting children. I hope this is true! We’ve been given changing information so much it’s hard to know which to believe.
Two steps forward. One step back. Two steps forward….
