We are officially, totally and completely put into the system to be foster parents!!!!
We have been for a week... no calls yet, but we are waiting!! Trying to be patient!
From what I have read and heard people usually wait about 3 weeks before they get a call. I have no idea why it seems to work like that, but it seems to. So we will wait (yet again in this process).
It would be really nice to have some time to get things squared away before school starts, but we will probably not get that luxury, which is fine. We homeschool our daughter and thought that we were avoiding public school and separation for the most part by only taking kids up to 6, but starting at 3ish they have to be enrolled in a Headstart program, which I am pretty clueless about. Having all that ready to go and organized would be awesome... but it will all be awesome!! I know God's time is perfect and I keep reminding myself of this
daily every hour pretty much constantly.
I still struggle with fears of not being good enough and that somehow we will just never be called. When I am left with my own thoughts and insecurities I sometimes conjure up ideas that for some reason our agency just verified (certified) us just to humor us, but have no plan to ever call us. Crazy. I know. That's why I leave it all to God, because I really believe that this is what we are supposed to be doing. I know that our baby(ies) is(are) waiting for us.
So :) we will wait and have confidence in only our God. We are super excited and cannot wait to welcome 1 or 2 kiddos into our home!!
