I'm starting to get a little anxious. We have been licensed for a month now and nothing has happened. We are supposed to have a Resource Family Consultant come and interview us because they will be the one to actually make the placement and we haven't heard from anyone. I called last week to see what was going on and they said that they were just really backed up with work. With the economic downturn they had to downsize quite a bit. Is there anything that the economy hasn't effected?
So I guess I will just wait until about a week before I stop working to get really worried. I just don't want to be waiting at home for very long. I have a lot of projects that I want to get done around the house, but I just really want to get started. I think what I am really worried about is that we have been licensed for a month and because our RFC hasn't interviewed us we could be overlooked for a placement that could really be a great match.

We got our license!!! Now we just wait for a phone call. We get 24 hours notice and then we get started. They told us that the first few weeks are the hardest. We just need to be there for them and let them know that they are safe and that they will get everything that they need. After a while, they will start trusting us. I'm not sure that I will ever do anything more rewarding than being a foster parent.
