I'm Still Here!

So... I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, and yes we are still becoming Foster Parents.

We are stuck in the minutia of the process.

Just shy of a week ago, I sat down to check my email after a LONG weekend of breaking down rooms and steam cleaning carpets. The house was absolutely trashed --- everything from the 3 bedrooms was piled ontop of beds, in the living room... just a mess. In addition - I decided we should pull everything out of storage since we pulled out the crib to do the recall process. Everything is about 10 big boxes of baby clothes, blankets, etc.

And that is when I saw the email from our case manager... she would be at our house on Tuesday, March 1.

POOP. We have spent the past week cleaning, organizing, throwing stuff away (gasp), etc.

I took a day off of work, my parents entertained Bee all day Saturday, and hubbie will be taking Tuesday off to do the final touches.

I'm exhausted.

As I look around I think the same thing I always do... man we need to stay on top of it this time... our house ain't half that bad!


I feel esp. convicted as I have been reading some great blogs about the ministry of hospitality. Another great one by my friend... she got to guest blog...

So... small world who reads this... thanks for the prayers and keep them coming.

I can't believe in less than 48 hours our first home study will occur!


  1. Yay! Steps closer! I can't wait to see what you've done to the place. :) Praying for the home study as well.

  2. Praying! You're almost there!
