We're on the list

I totally forgot to post that we are officially licensed foster parents, as of last week.  Everyone tells me it won't be very long before our first call; while we are physically prepared, I'm not holding my breath.

Our license is for 1 child, ages 0-12 months, and we are considered a pre-adoptive home, which means we won't get called for children they absolutely know just need a safe spot to stay but will be returning home.  What that doesn't mean is that the child will become adoptable - no one can predict that as it's in the hands of the birthfamily and the judge.

If/when we do get our first placement, I'm not really sure how it will affect this blog.  I'm sure postings will drop off sharply as I adjust to live with 2 kidlets, but also I am not allowed to post/share any pictures of foster children, nor comment much on how the case might be progressing.  I believe I am allowed to blog about how the child is doing in our home.


  1. Congratulations! That's great news. I'm so happy for you!

    As usual, I've been enjoying your blog. :)

  2. WOOHOO!! We just got back in the pool last week too. Here's hoping that your wait ends quickly, and that ours doesn't last 4 1/2 years this time!
    Sending baby dust!
