Hi,

Can I join in?

Not sure whether we are going down the fostering route. Going to go to an info session next weekend if I can get hubby to agree.

Don't think I can do a third IVF cycle. We have a good life together so can be happy without kids but think it is worth exploring options.

I work full time so not sure if that would count against us. Not sure if you need to be a SAHM if you foster. Does anyone know?

Xxx

Hi welcome, hope you find the info session good next week.
All I can so about fostering is everyone has to be on board 100 percent for it to work.
I am a newly approved foster carer (2 months now) and I really enjoyed all the training we got.
To the answer to your question about weather or not you need to be a SAHM, I think that depends on what age group you wish or want to foster.
If it's little ones younger than school age then yes I do believe you do need to be a SAHM.
But if it's school age or over then every different local fostering teams have their own rules, some say you can work part time some say you can work full time and some of course say that one of you needs to be a SAHM.
Any questions you might have feel free to ask me x

Hi

Sorry to jump onto an old thread but just about to start the process in the UK and was wondering how you all have been getting on over the last few months....

Plex - I notice you are Warwickshire - we are going with Warwickshire council (going to their info evening next week) How has your experience been??
