any NY foster mommas here?

My husband and I aren't currently in a situation as to be able to foster, but adoption has always been close to my heart, and I met several children in "the system" and foster families when I worked at a special needs-integrated preschool, so I've been curious about the system and perhaps one day getting inolved in it as a way to reach out to these kiddos now that I am SAHM and not working at the preschool anymore.

I know the process varies from state to state, so I thought i'd see if there were any NY foster mamas here on DS who could tell me about their family's experience with our state's foster care system, and what the process looks like - both licensing, and placement.

Thanks, mamas.

God bless,
Hannah @ Aiketgate

Hi ladies,
DP & I have been certified in NY for a few (3) years, though we've only taken one placement b/c as soon as we got certified we found out DP was pregnant. Please feel free to post or PM me w/ questions...and I'm sure DP (aunt_freya) would be happy to answer questions, too.

Hannah, We're certified foster & adoptive in the county where you live...PM or email me if you want any specific details.
