It's a good day to re-start this blog.
It's Thanksgiving.
I'm about to complete my certification to become a foster parent.
We are excited. Next week, I'll meet my new home-finder, a young woman who actually ran the parenting classes I attended last year. She will do (another) initial home visit and we'll go over the few things I need to submit. I think it's just a couple of recommendations, Cub's social security card, and some updated medical forms. I hope I can get the house clean enough on Thursday.

I'm still a little undecided about the age of a potential child. I would love a baby for obvious reasons. But I don't know how that would fit in with our lifestyle and routine. I'm a working mom with little outside support. I don't know how that would work for me if the baby wasn't sleeping. An older child would be nice for Josette and possibly easier. It's hard to say as I can't assume what it will be like. Each child and situation is different. Right now, I'm leaving it in the hands of my higher power. I am keeping my heart and mind open and trusting that the way HP has led me to this place, He will also lead the right child to our home and family.
