I've been approved as a foster carer!
The great thing is, I can tell everyone now! I was afraid to tell people before, in case I jinxed things and made it less likely to happen. Our social worker was certain we would get approved, but I wanted to wait just in case.
We're getting our first placement on Friday of a three year old girl. I'm so nervous, but really excited.We'll only have her for a week, so it will ease us in gently. Our friends have given us a pram and a playpen, and I've bought some essentials like baby shampoo, wipes and other things like that.
I'm not sure quite how this is going to work alongside my writing, but watch this space!
