Help Our Children

I know I haven't been posting consistently, again. I always try to have something new going on. Well, this one is huge.

For several years, John and I have want to become foster/adoptive parents. We finally reached a point in our life where we though it would be right for our family. Timing has always been off.

We had started pursuing this back in Georgia. We completed the class, but never got any further than that.

So, in mid-August, I started getting things rolling. We attended the informational meeting on September 27th.  That was when drooped off our application and picked up the finger print forms.

The following week we had our fingerprints done and were told that it takes about 30 days for the results. We would then be given the information about classes.

Well, last Wednesday night (10/10) we received a phone call that a class would be starting the next day. We scrambled to get child care and get everything situated.

Come to find out, it takes the average couple 4-6 months to get into a class. They only start one per month. How did we get in in two weeks?

We know it is going to be a long journey, but the end result will be rewarding.

It is so sad to hear that there are so many children in foster care and not enough homes. If you have it in your heart and space in your house, do consider it.

I will continue to share what I can about our experience, so that you may one day do the same.


  1. This is so great!!! Another one of my classmates is a Foster parent. When we have the space, we will consider helping out too. God bless your family.

  2. Awesome, thanks for the encouragement.
