I hope it does.

No offense, but if you have a history of mental problems like depression and social problems, you shouldn't be a parent, it is too dangerous and risky.

if they're "all clear" there should be no problem. There are always complications while adopting. Its hard for two "normal" people to adopt. But if their "all clear" there should be no problem that "normal" people wouldn't occur.

In most states, if you can show that your depression/mental illness has been in recovery for 6 months or more, you can foster children.
Social services would probably request documentation from your doctor stating that you are no longer severely depressed and have worked through your social phobia.

You will be ok.

Your phobia and depression stays with you on file for a long time and you will have to be vetted before you become foster parents and you have to be assed by a Panel of experts i.e doctor they decide if you are capable of fostering.
