first step.

Tonight we took our first step towards becoming licensed foster care parents.
WE attended our orientation and signed up for our training classes...
Mountains of Paperwork will be forthcoming.... but how exciting it will be to help a child during such a difficult time :)
Thankfully we already have our fingerprinting and some class work done by working at EB. This process will still take us about 6 months. I hope to chronicle some of these adventures. I also hope to encourage you to take the plunge!

hey girlie!

That is SO EXCITING!!!! Steve and I have a huge desire to adopt someday. We aren't sure about the timing--but we know that God will show us. He has given us a very strong desire for adoption and I cannot wait to see how He will lead us! Can't wait to hear more about your fostering too!

Congratulations! One step down, a few more to go. We look forward to seeing how God works in your lives through this.
