DH and I are starting the process to become foster parents.
"What?? You already have two kids!!"
Uhh...yes we do ... we're aware :)
I wanted to share this process as we go from "Two Monkeys" to.. well, "More Monkeys" :)
Alot of people have asked why we have chosen to foster. The idea came to us in the form of a 16 year old girl named Amanda (not to be confused with my BFF Amanda) She was a cheerleader that I coached back in 2004. She was born to teenage parents and had been bounced around from house to house and it really had an effect on her. After a bad time with her Aunt she came to live with us before they could place her with her Grandmother. She lived with us for about a month.
During that time, we gained some experience with caseworkers, government hassle, but most importantly, having the chance to make a difference in a child's life.
This process is long, and can sometimes be grueling, but we are very excited to start this journey.
Look for updates :)
