I just got a call for a girl who is 17 and pregnant! I might be a foster mom to a young mom sooner than I thought! I hope this can work out! Wish me luck! Now I just need to talk to my husband about it... LOL

  • This is something I would love to do too. Good luck! it's hard, but rewarding.

    I would throw her an after baby shower to make sure that her guest list meets with the social worker's approval.

  • She is due in 2 weeks. If i were to get her that quickly do you think there would be enough time to throw a baby shower? Ahh! I am overwhelmed with excitement lol.

  • We talked a little more deeply into it and have decided to go meet her first before making a decision. That way she can decide if she wants us as foster parents as well. I hope this works out for her not matter what happens.
