My first visit will be on Friday after work. She will be coming to pick up my initial paperwork and doing a walk-through of the house.
I’m upset with myself for not finding the time to post after the last 2 training sessions. If I don’t have time to sit & write down my thoughts now, how will I ever be able to do it with a kid?!
Both of the last training sessions flew by. Though I am eager to dive in & see what it’s all really like, the sessions were informative and reassuring. Not to mention we had a great group of fellow foster parent hopefuls.
On the last day, the instructor brought in a woman (now in her 30s) who had spent 5 years in foster care as a child (in many different homes) and was finally adopted along with her 2 biological brothers. Hearing her story was not unlike others I had heard before, but each time I hear of the suffering a child as been through, my heart breaks a little more.
I am now finished with the training & moving on to the other steps. My entire family and close friends all know now. Everyone has expressed genuine enthusiasm and support for this journey that I am on. I am so thankful and just hope that the rest of the process goes as smoothly as the beginning has been.
In other news, I finally updated my phone software and was able to download the WordPress app, enabling me to write this on my phone as I relax in the recliner tonight!
