I just got off the phone with our licensing social worker and she informed me that we are now a licensed foster family/home!!! The certificate should be mailed soon. I am on cloud nine! We have been approved! Hip hip hooray!
Our licensing social worker will now give us over to another social worker that will pick up where the licensing social worker has left off. This will entail our family being put on various lists for children that come into the system in need of care.
This does not mean we will be delivered a child this week. This means we have done our part and are approved. Now, we wait as the process continues.
I have not told another soul. Scott is at a conference right now. I can’t wait to share this with him. I think I will run downstairs and tell our kids. Maybe we can have a celebratory lunch!
Thanks to those that have followed us along with this process. 🙂
