Tonight, I thought I would give a little bit of information about what you go through when you're first becoming foster parents. There is a process called a home study that all prospective foster parents need to go through before getting licensed.
Prospective foster parents are interviewed about many details of their life. This includes what their family life is like (if they have anyone else living in the home with them), what they do for a living, and what experience they have with children. Home finders from DSS need to see the house that the prospective foster parents live in as well.
I believe that prospective foster parents also need to provide character references to DSS from at least three people. DSS checks into quite a lot before allowing people to become foster parents.
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
