Hello from WI, We have fostered since 2005. Wouldn't change a thing!!! We love the children, try to love the parents, find homes for some, and Lord Willing will be adopting two in 2010. We have 3 bio children, too. God bless and good luck.

Hi Michelle,
We are new at this too. We have our first fost-adopt placement right now, she is 1 mo old, we brought her home from the hospital. I posted another thread a couple below with the whole scoop.
Good luck on this journey! It is already so emotional and we just got started!

How long did you guys wait from when you were licensed to when you got your placement? I've heard that it's "hopping' right now...lol but that there are a lot of couples waiting for girls.

Re: Wanted to introduce myself!

Hi Friends!

We are in the same boat as you chasingboys and Katspradley. We have 2 little boys, and are almost certified to foster/adopt. Our agency says that we should be licensed by the end of January. We can't wait, and are also wondering what we are getting ourselves into! Looking forward to hearing your journeys as well.

Please keep us updated!

We waitied about 2 mo for our placement. Now is the hard part of "waiting" to see if we will get to keep her! :-)
