Foster Care Timeline

June 2012 - Started praying about Foster Care, God starts answering that prayer by opening doors (including the fact that my husband was on board and even excited for the idea).

July 2012- Called the central office for the Department of Children's Services for our state, got a call back a few days later from the office in our city and was given the name and number of the person I needed to call to set up our training classes.

August 9, 2012 - Began PATH class

September 20, 2012 - Finished PATH class

September 25, 2012 - First Homestudy visit - General interviews, gave social worker tour of the house

October 4, 2012 - Second Homestudy visit - Interview with just me

November 1, 2012 - Third Homestudy visit - Interview with just the Hubs. Our social worker got a flat tire and had to reschedule.

November 7, 2012 - Third Homestudy visit - Interview with just the Hubs ;)

December 18, 2012 - Final Homestudy visit!

December 30, 2012 - Our paperwork is sent off to our state's DCS office and we are officially DONE!! (Well, really this is just the beginning) We are approved for one child age 3-12, or a sibling group that is able to share a room. Now, we wait.

This process took a lot longer than we expected it to, and most of the other people in our path class were approved before we were, but this was definitely God's timing.
