 my DH and I are hoping to start fostering children within the next 24 months or so and I'm excited about finding a site to ask questions/advice on the whole process. Thought I'd introduce myself!

Hello and welcome to our group!  There are lots of moms in this group that have done foster care adoptions and can share valuable insight and resources.

Welcome! Sounds like you are just at the very beginning stages of the process? I hope you will find lots of support and encouragement here, as I know I have. :)

My DH and I became licensed foster parents two and a half years ago. We have adopted one 4yo and reunified one 1yo. We're currently taking a break and considering whether to close our home, but we still try to stay connected in our local FP circles as support people.

 We are in the beginning stages (very beginnng), I just retired from the Army, so we are taking about 6 mos to a year to find and buy a home, then while we are settling e plan to get licensed. We are also trying to conceive righ now, but if that doesn't happen in the next 3 mos we are stopping the Chlomid. I've wanted to foster since my early 20's and it looks like we're about at the right point to finally start!
