I don’t have any advice but just wanted to tell you how awesome it is you’re doing this! Having just gotten married, I will say it is super nice having free time to just be with each other. You do what is best for both of you. It is alright if you decide to wait a bit, you always have time!

I work for CPS here in Canada and in charge of the intake process for prospective foster and adoptive applicants. Fostering should not be taken lightly. If you’re having doubts I suggest you defer your application until both of you are on the same page. FWIW, here were a little stricter. I would’ve denied your application based on your new relationship as co habiting applicants must’ve been living together for a year. We really look at stability as it’s not fair to let traumatized children go through that.

Thank you for having such a big heart and opening you’re your home to foster kiddos! Talk with your boyfriend and see what he thinks. If you fostered older kids, they might require less attention than infants and young kids. Something to consider! And you have the rest of your life to foster, if you Decide to give your relationship a little more time before fostering.

Just want to say you are amazing! I don’t have experience with foster care, but I hope you and your BF will be able to come up with a good routine together.

mrs_mnv :  I could be wrong but it sounds like they’re not cohabitating but she’s sad to not have all the time in the world for her bf anymore. 100% agree with everything else you’ve said! I am a CYC and stability is so important. I also thought about the new relationship aspect when reading the OP’s post.   Buuuuut OP its amazing for you to be so selfless and open up your home to children in need.
