I have wanted to become a foster parent for a while now. This morning I was reading the news and it said that in 2009 there were 36 children who died from child abuse in Colorado alone. That was up from 27 in 2007. I find that completely unacceptable that those children should have had to die that way. Then again I am not currently doing anything to help get them out of the situations. My husband and I both want to get into foster care. However were not sure if we will be approved. What exactly is it that they will be looking for. I currently live in a 3 bed apartment in one county but my lease is out in November and we plan on moving to another county for my daughter to go to school in 2012. My husband currently works while I stay home with our 3 children. I am also expecting our 4. I can go back to work when his new shifts start for 3 days a week. Were also both in school full time. I am studying to be a teacher and he is studying to be a computer forensic scientist. My daughter has her own room right now while my sons share. I am due in August and the baby will be with us in our room for at least 6 months. I dont know if I have to have a completely seperate room for a child. I know my mom didnt but that was a while ago. I also dont know if the fact that we plan on moving to a different county will matter.
Any information that you can give me or any advise would be greatly appreciated.
