Hello
 
Hello from Indiana! I'm finally able to start posting (yay) after a long time lurking and reading tons of posts. :thumbsup:

My dh and I have been married for 19 yrs and we had 4 children. When our youngest was 3, we started fostering and have been fostering since then. We've had lots of kids come and go... Somewhere around 35-40 over the past 5yrs. In the Fall of 2010, we got the call for a tiny baby. We ended up adopting him in November 2011 when he was 14mo old.

Adoption was never our family goal for fostering, but we are extremely grateful and so in love with our smallest kiddo! He's been a sweet little blessing!

Our older children are 18, 16, 13 and 9. We also currently have a 6yo fs who's been with us for over a year and no end in sight.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better!

Hi I'm in Indy too. See you on the Adoption.com boards too. This is my favorite of the too much more laid back. Welcome.

Welcome! We've been licensed over a year now and just have had one baby we had from birth until a little over 3 months. She left about 2 months ago and we're waiting for another placement. I too have four bio kids. I grew up with my parents fostering (and my mom fostered with her mom in the '70s before she married my dad) so I guess you could say it's a family tradition. ;)

I've seen you over at the adoption.com boards too, Dalynn! In fact, when I found this board and saw you here, I figured it must be a nice place to be! :-)

I'm thinking I like this one better too. It seems a lot more laid back.

Thank you all for the nice welcome!
