Back to school

Not too much news to share. Getting ready to start week #2 of the school year! Last week was crazy busy. Still busy this week but more my regular routine.

I haven't done much about my adoption process since the class ended almost 2 weeks ago. With the start of school I have been too busy to meet with anyone. I am hoping to do that this week. I though I had a state agency picked but I decided to check out a couple different ones to find the right fit. Once I get an agency picked things will continue to move forward.

That's it for now!

Another step closer

Today I found out from the agency I am working with that I have been assigned a caseworker. I don't know who it is but supposedly she will be contacting me soon (soon to her and soon to me may be different). My caseworker and I will be working closely together to match me with "my children."

But I still have things to do:
CPR/ First Aid - signed up
TB test
fingerprinting/background check
pets need to be updated on all shots. Of course they just came due.
car inspection (really!?)
Licensing Walk through aka Home study.

The clouds have returned

We had a great class tonight. Some adoptive parents came and talked to the class and we got to meet their kids as well. It was awesome to see "real" kids.
The lack of clarity comes in the foster or adopt? My ultimate goal is to adopt. Tonight in our class our teachers mentioned if our goal is to adopt then don't foster. Most kids go back home. I think that is great as long as their home is a good place for them. They have never really said that until tonight. UGH!!!
