Point of No Return

We finally dropped our Foster/Adoption paperwork in the mail yesterday! What a lot of information they want, I think we will have nothing sacred by the end of all this. Oh well, it's worth it.

Our next steps are to get physicals, fingerprints by the FBI, and take a CPR/First Aid and HIV/Blood-borne Pathogens class while we wait the 90 days for our license. We will be having a homestudy done sometime soon and probably will be told other things that we need to do. I guess I better get busy finding a doctor, now that we have insurance through John's work. We are signed up for the CPR class on December 10.

The second bedroom is a disaster area right now because we keep piling all the stuff for the kids in with my sewing setup and John's desk. I'm trying to do as much sewing as I can to clean out the closet. I really have no idea where I'm going to put all my crafting stuff! John's desk will go into our bedroom. Mom and Dad brought out our trundle beds last month and we now have a dresser, an escape ladder, and a fire extinguisher. We still have a few things left to buy, like mattresses, a laundry basket, and car seats. Some things we will have to get at the last minute when we know the ages and gender of the kids. If anybody has things to donate, I'm sure we can find a use for them!

That's all for now. I'm sure there will be more interesting information to share in the future.


  1. I haven't told you yet, but I am so excited for you guys (and proud of you too, it's a lot of work and you're doing something that'll change some person's life for the better!)!!
    I think about you all the time... :)

  2. You guys will be changing the life at a time. That is just one thing Jesus loves about you.
