Here is our current list. Some of the others have foster parents/relatives that are now interested or had needs that were beyond our comfort zone.
1.) Sib set of 5 (g-4, g-3, b-2, b-1, b-2 mos) - PRT set for May
2.) Sib set of 3 (b-3, g-2, g-almost 1) - PRT happening soon
3.) Single child (g-3) - PRT set for April
4.) Single child (g-1.5) - PRT happening soon
5.) Single child (b-4 mos) - PRT set for end of April
PRT (parental rights terminated) - after this happens it takes 4-8 weeks to get back the JE (court journal entry) and then a BIS (best interest staffing to choose a family) is set. **We were told that the BIS can now be scheduled before the JE is rec'd so hopefully that will speed up the process!
We were at first told that the Sib set of 5 was not going to be available due to the current foster home considering parenting all of them. After being told that we were inquiring, the foster family said that they were glad b/c they feel that there needs to be a father figure. We were asked at the end of last week to think about it over the weekend and figure out housing, finances, meeting needs, etc. for five more little ones. After much thought we have decided to go forward with this. We are still concerned that the foster family may get more attached before TPR (May 29th) and decide that they can't let them go or that there will be an appeal after TPR but we are trying to stay positive.
We will still look into the other children as well as they become available and decide what our hearts are telling us we should do.
