Re: Foster Care in a Small House
Rules vary by state and I think even area sometimes. We have a small home but it's three small bedrooms. Our agency does not allow foster children and bio children to share a room. Our dd has the smallest bedroom and our foster room is just barely large enough to be licensed for two kids. Like the previous poster most of our square footage is in the living space. Once ds is here he'll sleep in our room at first and then share with dd later (though we are buying our own house soon it will probably be around the same size as this one and just three bedrooms). We can get a waiver and have a foster child under 2 in our bedroom but our agency prefers placements that would avoid that situation.
SAHM to my Dd(6/08) , Ds (9/12) and foster mom. Always praying for our five former foster kids.
