Any other WI mamas know?
There was some talk about this over on the foster care forum on

We just sent in our application for Thomas's AAP. I had no idea it would be so much, but I guess the base rate is the foster care rate. I had no idea. He gets to keep medi-cal too.

medi-cal kinda sucks though. Few pedis will even take a kid with medi-cal, so we will put him on our plan.
