Just making sure I heard correctly, the child is not allowed on the initial comfort call because the focus is the parent and foster parent relationship? Did I understand that right?

While we will do our best to answer questions here in the chat, it is easier to sort and answer them for the presenters/panelists if you enter them in the Q&A box.

@Michael "credit" for training is always up to your licensing agency/worker. Discuss with your licensing worker if/how to have this count.
