  • This probably doesn't help because adoption is a little different, but there was a 2 month gap between when I was born and when my parents picked me up... I went straight into foster care from the hospital, but I don't know how long it was before my foster parents knew I was coming

  • i think it just depends on what you are open to.
    we got our 1st call just 2 weeks after our licencing was complete....and then, they never stopped calling!

  • It also depends on your area, as to how many children are placed into foster care, and definitely differs by what age group you are open to especially when so many want the little ones... Good luck!!!
