foster care in ca

Anyone have experience with the ca foster care system? I'd love to pick your brain. I'm curious, and finding little info online to determine if it's right for us.

Re: foster care in ca

My husband and I are foster parents thru an agency in the Central Valley. We've been licensed since last July & have only had 1 placement since. She's been with us 6 months. Feel free to pick away! It's a big decision, and we would have done a lot of things differently had we known.

I've been a foster parent off & on for 9 years. In both San Diego & Riverside counties. Private agencies, not county. Feel free to ask me questions. I'm not a pro like some of the ladies here, but I know a little bit.

We might be very close indeed! We live in the greater Ripon-Turlock metroplex. I can't PM yet since I'm new, but I'll keep posting until I can. This area desperately needs more foster parents, that's for sure!
