We have made it to the approval stage!! Our caseworker called on Thursday telling us we have been approved!! WOOHOO! Now the next step is for us to sign what is called "the boarding home agreement". This is our contract with the county saying that we will be a foster home for children in foster care.
Now that we are in the final stretch we still have a lot to finish up. I'm such a procrastinator! We have finished putting the bunk beds together. Now I have to paint our infant/toddler room. We are SO blessed to have 5 bedrooms in our home. The older children will share a room with my son or daughter. We will be purchasing a crib once I get the room painted. The crib we picked out is a nice one! It's a crib, toddler bed and even a full bed in one.
We have also replaced our dining room set with a larger one! We are prepared with seating for dinner time! Hopefully the next time I chat about foster care I will be sharing with you what we have as far as placements.
