Jumping in!
I'm excited to see a place for foster parents! I have always felt the call to foster, and it seems God has been working in my husband's heart as well. It looks as if after the first of the year we will begin the process to become foster parents through a local prison ministry! I am excited and nervous at the same time. We have three children ages 5, 7 and 9. I think we're all in a great place to do this, but any advise is certainly welcome!

Be patient! We thought we would have calls as soon as we finished our classes. It took 10 months to get a call. It was worth the wait!

Re: Jumping in!
Good luck! We fostered a few years back & just got re-licensed & we are waiting for a placement. We only fostered a few infants, so I don't know that I am one to give advice, but I hope that you find it fulfilling! I cant wait to have a baby to care for again, but grateful that the need isn't so great that I have been needed yet. :)
