Foster care news!!!
We finally got in touch w/our SW - she was on vacation and had erased our first message on accident! So now she knows it was from us and emailed us back. We thought her final report needed to be done for us to get kids, but that's not true! They have actually had our name come up and they are looking for a match for us. So we could get kid(s) soon! It was so exciting to hear that and we are feeling READY!! The thought of having a baby in the house again has made us laugh, cry and worry a little too. We started talking about getting out of bed in the middle of the night, making bottles, wiping big messes....ok, those things mostly made us cry, but there were good thoughts too! The snuggles, the wrapping them up like burritos, the itty bitty socks, the making them gurgle and smile...we can't wait. I mean we can, we'll have to, but in the meantime we'll be cleaning and reviewing the supplies we have. Please keep us in prayer! This is what we want, but of course, more importantly, we are seeking God's will in this. It is our prayer that He prepares us for what may come...and that He is with the kid(s) and family and SWs. We know it won't be the easiest transition, but we depend on Him for so many things and we know He has provided for us in so many ways. Ok, sorry, I'm getting a little snuffly here...I know a lot of you have asked for updates! So now you know as much as we do =) Thanks for hanging in there w/us!
