:) Hiya olive and everyone else

Olive thanks very much for setting up this thread there seems to be so much lack of support for people going through fostering???????? Youre a star  ^Bubble Gum^ ^Bubble Gum^ ^Bubble Gum^ ^Bubble Gum^

As you know olive we are just starting the fostering route too  :)

have you heard anything form the sw yet its awful having to wait int it love but i suppose they have jobs to do dont they????????  ;D

Our friends got accepted and got there 1st fosterchild 1 day after coming back frm turkey in august i know it took them about 12months to go through the process?????? have you been told anything different?????? we have been told we will be put on the 1st lot of training in end of jan beginning of feb (cant wait).

Allthough on the immediate front we have been accepted to do respite care for foster children while going through the registration process :) so here goes we have our 1st respite foster child coming on sunday this week omg thats so quick he is only coming for the day to get used to us and visa versa then after that we are expected to have him for 4 weeks in the next year spread out of course im so excited we all cant wait hee hee  ;D ;D.

well enough on us for now where abouts are you olive?????

take care speak soon love kee xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

thanks for the well wishes ^afro^

kee the sw still hasnt called so will give it until monday and i will call them ^roflamo^ dont want to be too pushy ^roflmao^

we were told that the process in our area takes 6 to 9 months in total usually! so quite good seeing as some are a year or over .
Im in norfolk kee what about you?? I thought we would only have room for one at a time but the social worker said our guest bedroom is perfect for bunkbeds! you should have seen my dh's face ^roflmao^  she also suggested we do 5 to 10 years at first and see how we get on!

wow ^goodluck^ for sunday kee i hope the visit goes well for you!

:) Olive excellant news on them coming back to see you on the 1st nove not long now  :eek:  :)

Thanks for the good luck wishes laine hows your journey going hunni??????

Well we had our 1st respite foster child for the day with us yesterday all day 9 til 9  ;D had a great time and he had a whale of a time bless him he reallly took to dh patrick mind you they were at the national railway museum they were both like 2 big kids bless them  ;D ;D ;D ;D got home bout 3is then cooked a massive sunday roast which we all enjoyed asked him how his day had been and he replied when can i come again and when can i stay over so we explained to him we have to wait for it to be ok by the sw then he can come for respite for a week he was really pleased bless him!

So on our front an excellant result yesterday  :) :)

p.s if anyone has not been and can get the national railway museum is a great day out it was £6 to park but free to get in and it took us 5 hours to get round and that wasnt even going on everything etc etc! it was one hell of a day!

hows things going olive love love kee xxxxx

hey ladies

can i join you? just to give you some info on us-we have been ttc for 7yrs now and are due to do ivf next yr , even though we are due to do ivf i still feel that we could maybe foster so after long talks with dh i have applied for info pack about fostering, i feel it does no harm in enquiring.

i feel at the moment we cant say oh yes we will do it or say no- i think to make that choice we need all the info! have found some fab websites which give great info on the whole process.

good luck

hugs
