My husband and I are starting the process to become foster to adopt parents through the Bair Foundation. Is it a long process? We are in TX. The lady I spoke with today made me feel like it was not a long process she said it could take about 45 days if we hurried it. Is it easier to adopt if you start out as a foster? This is our first time and would be our first child to be in our home and we have no other childnen...and advice and info is much appreciated! Thank youAnswer Question

My previous supervisor was the executive director of our local Bair Foundation. The children who were placed with this group were high needs children and needed very understanding homes. Children who smeared fecal bacteria on the walls, children who masturbated in public and screamed out sexual words, and children who sometimes were violent with other children. Also children that seemed to have difficulty attaching to other people. I don't say this to scare you away and perhaps your local foundation is different. I say this only to be real about the situations children who were contracted out to this foundation are sometimes like. They seemed, from my perspective, to be children who were difficult to place and had extra extraordinary needs in terms of needing parents who truly could be accepting of that child.Â God bless you if you can do this but the road is long and not always easy to navigate.Â

Next question overall
So since you can't see it anymore, do you bother shaving it or trimming it?...
