Review for Alameda County Foster Parent Association, Chapter 1, San Leandro, CA, USA
My wife and I made time to be trained through the foster program so that we could adopt.
Our first placement was a baby boy. We know this would be a challenge because this was our first. We had no prior experience with fostering but with the great training we received, the placement went smoothly. However, the best training we received was when the child was placed in our home and for almost 2 years it was the hardest / rewarding training my wife and I ever got. After the two years, the child was returned to his mother. This was a heartbreaking time. However, we did not give up. We continued our training. Now my wife and I got a call for another placement for a baby girl. This time this placement is for adoption and this placement is easier thanks to the best training we received from our first placement and the Alameda county foster training program.
