Well, so much for that idea!
We were all set to attend the fostering orientation meeting last night and then Louis was offered (and accepted) a very good paying job with the federal government. In DC. We do not live in DC. Sigh.
As of the end of the month, we will be a "commuter family". We hope that he can find a federal job here within a year. Until then, he'll live out there with occasional trips home. Obviously, fostering is now out of the picture - at least until he is back full-time.
