Rogelio answers all of the questions to last episode's nail-biting cliffhanger, explains how sleep is a thing of the past, describes the visits with the bio-parents, and closes (?) the show on a soap-box and reading from a catalogue.

The exciting conclusion to our last episode. Did we or did we not get the placement? We have our first guest (I had to pull some strings). Rogelio discusses coming to term with being a stay-at-home dad! Listen to the very end for some encouraging words from our guest.
Listen to the moment we discover we will be getiing a placement, how we reacted to the news the following day, and how Rogelio looks great with a baby sling. Also, make sure you stay for the final segement (stinger) for an update.
Rogelio describes the process of final approval and what that means, talks about jumping into the deep end of dadhood, and tries to bring some clarity to discussing the subject of fostering and adopting. Also, fun with music.

For everyone who was ever curious as to what it takes and how to start to foster or becoming a resource family, this might be a good first stop.
