We have our first meeting with our adoption worker tomorrow at 2. I am nervous but excited. I will let you know how it goes.

It went well. She did say that it can take a while to have a match. There are a lot of families ready to adopt right now in this area. In the meantime, we are going to do relief until we get the phone call. One step closer.

I'm not a foster parent but I have a lot of contact with foster parents. I would say I'd have to support the movement to professionalize and prepare foster parents. Too many foster parents are not given sufficient information or resources to properly care and raise the children in their homes. They are then often blamed when things are not going well. This seems like a good initiative.
