HOME STUDY #1 - and surprise!

oh my goodness oh my goodness oh my goodness...


home study wasn't as scary as i thought it would be - she spent the majority of the time chillin w/ us in the living room asking basic questions
 - why foster care?
 - going through a list of characteristics of children and having us rank - preferrable, acceptable, will consider, and would not consider

towards the middle (or maybe end) she let us know that her goal is to have us licensed by the end of march.


---- it's been 3 days and it still hasn't quite sunk in... babies before Easter... hmmmm....

feelings are - PANIC, fear, second guessing, excitement, terror, awe, confusion

with all the research i had done - this was not what we expected.

now i am reminding myself her goal - the ideal, MAY not be reality.

we really thought May more towards June.


we may get kids before Bee's bed from Rooms 2 Go gets delivered (next day delivery my tushie)

Needless to say, dear hubby is having to go into hyper drive trying to finish the addition stuff... and i see the self doubt in him arise. can he physically do this? can he really put the framing of the last door up... as i saw him panic over the room, i realize he is just as freaked out as i am, but being slightly less verbal... it's interesting to see him express this, greatful the Father whispered in my ear so I could pull back and let him freak out and be supportive.

babies, toddlers, lil' ones... are we ready? i think so, i know so, but just as a momma panics in the last months of preggieness, the same questions are popping up for me...

well - time to go keep up the clean house!

****Funniest event of the home visit -> Bee walking around showing Miss Ray that the rooms "aren't dirty anymore"
