If you have enough room go ahead and get a crib and a bed. But if you are lacking on space, just go with a twin bed for now. Most agencies will approve you for a baby even if you don’t own a crib. You can keep an unassembled pack and play under the twin bed to hold you over in case you get a call for a baby. If you do get a call for a baby and end up purchasing a crib, buy one that also converts to a toddler bed. Since sheets don’t take up a ton of space in the closet, I’d suggest buying several different sheet sets and a more neutral comforter. When children come in to foster care they have lost all control of everything, and something as small as picking their own new sheets out of the closet may immediately help give them just the tiniest feeling of ownership over a completely foreign room.
Encourage your foster child or young person to get creative and bring some of their personality to the room. If you are happy for them to stick photos or posters on the wall then let them know. If not, a white board or chalk board is a great way for them to express themselves whilst not damaging your walls!
