We have begun the training process. The first orientation was uneventful, as we expected, but it does feel good to be doing something. I’m chomping at the bit to check off every box of every requirement, and Cliff is trying to hold me back to keep a sustainable pace. We have submitted as much of our application as we can; check out our to-do list. We are now in a bit of a holding pattern as we take classes and wait for our home health inspection, home fire inspection, and the CPR and First Aid courses to begin. Needless to say, I have contacted all parties involved so we know what will be required, and have a long list of smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and safety latches to purchase.

Congratulations!! I am so happy to hear that you guys are going this route! I have a very good friend who has been fostering for a year (hoping to adopt her foster son soon). If you ever want someone to talk to about it, let me know and I can give you her online journal info. How exciting! I look forward to following your journey!

I’m so excited that the process has begun! I will be praying for the two of you during your preparation process. When I think about what you have said about preparing things it makes me feel like the two of you are just like any expecting parents. Just like any expecting parents you are preparing the house, learning about parenting, and wanting the process to speed up. I think of the two of you as “parents to be” and I am so excited. God knows your child just like any expecting parent and is watching over him or her until they are in your arms! I Love Ya’ll and will always be praying for you and your child.

I am ecstatic for you two. There aren’t two more loving and deserving parents in all the world. I can’t wait to see what (and who!) God has in store for you!!!!!!! Love! J and B

Wow! You are going to be so much more prepared when your little arrives than we were. I just can’t wait! I’m imagining all of our family holidays, trips and visits together. I’m making plans now. Congratulations. We love you and can’t wait to meet our next grandchild.
love, Mom

Uncle Cliff and Aunt Cat,

We are so excited that you are going to have a new cousin for us soon. We can’t wait. We will love them so much and teach them good things.

We Love You,
