Well . . . we went and submitted our application to become a foster family back in March. Today our homestudy is done along with our CPR and training requirements. We just might be licensed by the end of the week.
About 5 years ago I had a little prayer/nap time one afternoon. I often pray for God to use me. PLEASE. and if he wants to use me PLEASE! make it very obvious. Anyway I was startled out of my prayer/nap time by the door bell. It was the scheduled furnace maintenance guy. I showed him to the furnace and apologized for the amount of toys that were on the rec-room floor. After he did whatever he was doing to my furnace he said "don't worry about the toys, I have 6 kids". We only had 3 at the time. I responded with something like "Wow that is a crazy amount of kids but I LOVE it!" He went on to tell me that a couple were foster kids and that the need is great. We chatted for a good 15 minutes.
So you get it. The seed was planted many years ago.
I still want more from China but for right now I know this is exactly where we are supposed to be.
I am scared
I am excited
I am terrified
I just want to get this started.
If you see me out and about with a little person please respect their feelings. We were told during training by a former foster child how much they hated the questions. You are welcome to ask me in private. Thanks!
