My husband and I had been trying to conceive on our own and with fertility specialist for four years.(nothing worked) We then decided we would be Foster/Adoptive parents to children in need. Febuary2014 is when we started the certification process. May2014 our home was certified and my husband and I became foster parents. I have had 1 peanut for respite care(stole my heart) and several calls for other placements that fell through. I am now in the process of getting an older child over the age 12, and my husband and I really wanted younger children. I guess I'm just nervous about having an older child, I am a pre school teacher so I am always surrounded by young children. Don't get me wrong I am over the moon to get this placement.....just wondering what advice is out there with other foster parents who took in teens? The Do's and Don'ts and what works? Thanks in advance.
