CAcowgirl...there will be no funding for us. But he does get his own spending money for clothes and school from what I understand. I would have to supply his food and basic needs. I am checking with an organization now as to what it takes with their program to get approval but it may very well be different for the one he is with.
I don't want him to have a bad experience here. I have grown to care very much about this young man in the past 6 weeks. After he talked to me so in depth last night I take it that he has also grown to care very much for our family as well. I am trying so hard to include him in things we do and keep him involved with my daughter and her friends so that he is meeting kids his own age instead of always been with grade school kids. I think he needs to go to the dances, movies and out to McDonalds with other teens. :)
