Tucson has over a dozen of foster licensing agencies and a lively foster parent community. While I became licensed quite quickly (~3 months), I did not decide to take in my first full-time placement until two years after. Sadly, I had to prioritize tenure preparation over my desire to have a family. Foster parenting is not easy, but I can say that it has brought much more love into my life. A huge shoutout to Grace Retreat for being inclusive of LGBT+ parents and for the care they provide. You can read my contribution to the American Mathematical Society Math Mamas Blog about parenting during the pandemic
