A and I have decided to let a teenager stay the night every Sunday. It's a strange situation but we feel like we can help so we might as well. N is in a home right now that is not licensed, I didn't ask how and why he was placed in this particular home, I just know that he has to stay one night a week in a licensed home. Since the family he is living with right now lives about 5 minutes away it just works out. We meet N for the first time tomorrow, then he will stay the night every Sunday for the next 2-3 months. I have to admit, I'm a little nervous but I know that helping children is what I (we) want to do and this is temporary. We were also told that it would not interfere with any other placements that might be available to us. That's it for now, I'll let you know what happens tomorrow....I have to call his foster dad tonight.
