It's done, the paperwork that is....we can now foster children other than family members. This is awesome news! A is coming around more and more; he is still nervous about getting attached to a child that will eventually go home but our SWer told us that she will look out for us as best she can.
I have to tell you all this just b/c I couldn't believe it myself. We got our first call Thursday night. It was about 8:30pm., a placement SWer called (not Stacy) and asked if we could possibly take in a 6 month old Hispanic boy. It took all I had to say no. I had already told Stacy that we would not be ready for a child until our nieces went home. Which should be in the next couple months. Anyhoooo....I said no. How sad, right? I wonder where he is right now. I just know we are not ready, Greyson is only 13 months old and we only have one crib. I was so surprised I honestly could not think straight. As I sit here now and think about it, we could have used G's pack-n-play until we got everything together. But then I think, four kids? Too much for me to handle right now. I know our child is out there somewhere and he/she will find her way to us when the time is right!
