New Foster Parent with a question.
My husband and I have just gotten certified for foster care 2 weeks ago. We are on a group placement loop that sends general info (age, sex, race, location) on children that need homes. We are in a rural area and there is not a lot of need close to our home the closest we have seen in need with the ages we can do as we have 3 young bio children at home is an hour and 15 min away. Should we wait or should we offer to take in a child/children from that distance? It just seems like a long time in the car (visits, court, doctors, etc) for young children, foster and bio, but on the other hand we really want to provide a good home and love for children in need and I don't mind the drive myself. Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!
