Question Fostering in Ga?

Anyone else here fostering in Georgia? I have wanted to be a foster parent for years, but my husband isn't very interested. I am basically just trying to get information about the foster parent program in Ga, so I can pray about it!

Thanks!

Re: Fostering in Ga?

We foster adopted here in Georgia. Pretty much you let DFCs know you are interested and they should give you a packet of information for interested foster parents. Then as long as you are not in Berrien they will help you walk through each step. Fill out paperwork of interest, go to classes, get homestudy, criminal background, fingerprints, letters of recommendation, and medical exams done, then you will be put on a list. I pray for your sake you are not in Berrien county, they are a nightmare to deal with and if you are not as nice as you can be it only gets worse. They lose paperwork, switch case workers constantly, don't return phone calls and when you do finally have a placement if adopting will make sure they can drag it out as long as possible even when it is what the natural mom wants.
In the end our son was well worth it. He is precious and beautiful and the best thing that ever happened to us.
