We're DONE!!!

We have finally completed our 27 hours of foster care licensing classes!!  We are SO thrilled that we are finished and that we can resume Saturday's as normal.  We were missing our babies; it was hard being away all day, especially for me since I'm never away from them for more than a few hours at a time and even that is pretty rare.  

Our last class (Nov.22) was not great.  We missed the classes on October 25th because I had a wedding that I was coordinating (something I do here and there) so we had to make it up at a different location with different social workers.  Thank goodness we didn't sign up for those classes.  The social workers weren't as knowledgeable as the ones we had been working with and the other members of the class participated very little.  But I'm sure they were all good people.

Anyway, we're done and now all that is left to do it wait for that phone call.  We should receive our actual license next week and I expect a call around then.  But who knows...  I am just praying for this little girl and also for our family.  I pray that God blesses this experience and that ultimately His will is done.

I am so excited for you guys! I wish more Christian families would be willing to do what you are doing. There are so many Christians who say they are "pro-life" without ever living out that conviction other than voting. Being a foster parent is being truly pro-life. If there were more people like you perhaps abortion clinics would be out of business. You and Mark are truly taking a step in faith and obedience. I am proud of you and I'll continue praying.
