I have received several great questions recently about preparing for, accepting, and saying goodbye to placements. I've started answering some and kept thinking it seems like I've written this before. Alas, here are several posts to answer some of your commonly asked questions. If you have more questions after reading some of these posts, just post them in a comment here or in the original post - I'll get your questions either way and will be happy to answer them as soon as possible.

I sincerely hope this is helpful. It's very helpful for me to know I'm helping others interested in foster care or adoption as I write this blog.
