Southern Saskatchewan! And I agree with a post below about trying to get a group together for just Canadians as our laws and rule are different. @ Sonnie Neal...I would love to start a group for us Canadian Women.( nothing against our American friends, but you are right our laws are different) Also Sonnie, I am new to Saskatchewan and just starting the adoption/foster process, any advice for a newbie? How long have you been at the process? Any tips?

Hi Hayley! yay, another canadian :) and in Saskatchewan no less. We've only been in SK for four years, previously in Calgary. What about you? I love my community and I love fostering. Advice for you? well, what stage are you at? have you done the PRIDE training. Is your hope to foster or adopt? I'm sorry I have so many questions, I'm just excited and I am so thankful that you've gotten on this journey. You won't be disappointed :) challenged, loved, hurt, overjoyed but not disappointed. Get back to me quick...

Duh dumb me..... I just took the time to ACTUALLY read what Karen posted. So - this is our community. LOL

June 30th we just took in a permanent placement. We were doing pre-placement visits for nine months so it was almost like a "paperwork" pregnancy. We are so excited, he's a wonderful boy, 11 years old and definately part of the family already.

Any of you have permanent placements? how has your experience been?

So??? any of you ladies interested in starting a Foster/Adoptive mom "Canada style" Community?

Let's say if we get 10 of us interested I'll find out how to start a community for us.

So Yay or Nay... let me know :)

Hi Karen<
I love that you're trying to have a Foster/Adoptive conversation for Canadian families. I notice that a few converstations seem to be from USA... Do you have any ideas how we can start our own community? I love my southern neighbours it's just that our laws, terms, training etc are fairly different and it would be helpful for a new foster family like us, from Saskatchewan to be part of a canadian only community??? what do you think?
