IN some ways I'm nesting....... I'm wanting a home. There is no baby on the way. (BUt maybe 20 foster kids-- Can you believe I have parented over 11 boys these past 6 months!!)
And to be honest I'll admit a fear of future pregnancies. God doesn't give us a"spirit of fear". I know that. I'm not putting limits on God. He can do something amazing to my heart...tomorrow or in three years.
Right now I'm willing to do whatever it takes--WORK LOTS-- , to get a home. I want to live in a home. I want to save. I want to live in a home we can afford.
Eventually I want to have some foster children in our home. (Maybe we will start with ONE vs. 5....) I seriously would ASK/BEG some of you awesome parents to take in a foster child, because some of the homes they are in are BAD!! literally BAD, folks. Some case plans are only 6 months. And one can always close the foster beds when they feel the need. WE had two girls leave "to go to a better place", only to be brought back a week later because of the horrible conditions. I always want to have a bed open for a little one who needs it. I just don't want to expect --someone else to do it. --
Jacob and I plan to move out of EB on January 11. I plan to continue working here even if I have to spend the night a few times a week. I'M not scared of work and long hours, but I am ready to be able--to go home-- after those long hours :)
Please pray as we look for a home/Apt in the Brandon area. Centrally located near the jails.... ANy one else wanna live near the jails :)
