A New Chapter

Most of you who read my blog already know this, but just to make an "official" announcement..... We are in the process of getting licensed to be a Foster Home, with the hopes of adopting from the Foster Care system! The last few weeks have been extremely busy, having to go through the 30 hours of training classes, tackling the mound of paperwork, taking online modules and tests, getting CPR/FA certified, TB tests, and on and on! We passed our fire inspection yesterday, so now we are just waiting for our health inspection next week. After that, our agency will schedule us for our Home Study!! Then once we sign the final contract, we will officially be waiting for our first placement (a.k.a. baby!) However, we have been warned that we will not be waiting long. As our trainer says, "Children wait" and homes are needed.
So we are getting very close and are definitely getting anxious to see what the future holds. I constantly have thoughts swirling around in my head about all of this, but most of it goes into my journal. However, I do want to document here on my blog also but I just haven't decided how much/little to share. I know we are not allowed to post pictures of the baby online (at least not of his/her face) and I will have to change names/give nicknames as I do share stories. (Family - we are allowed to send pictures via email)
We are getting all the baby stuff back out and doing our best to talk with Wyatt about bringing home a baby... not sure how much of that is soaking in, lol =)
Above all, we know we are following God's call for our family.. it won't be easy, but it will be worth it and we're just trusting for God to be with us each step of the way.
