So, we finally have our dates for our classes to teach us how to be parents. Hahahahaha. Actually, its what they are, but it is how to teach us to be parents to children that have been removed from their home or how to adjust from foster care to a "forever family". So now that this is moving super fast, we have to rearrange some of our remodeling plans. We were going to take a fireplace out of our living room that is for decoration only and then redo what will be the girls' room this fall. So now, we are redoing the girls' room first and then removing the fireplace. I ordered the bunkbeds today and hopefully will paint the bedroom in a couple of weeks. We are going to paint the bottom part of the bedroom mint green and the top part will be pink and white striped. I didn't think we would have to move this fast but since we have our classes scheduled that means we will have the "big" 2 hour homestudy soon. In the mean time, I have to start getting our family book ready. This is a book that tells a young girl or our case worker about our family, who the grandparents and great grandparents are, who are friends are and what we like to do. So I am asking everyone to pray that God will place a child with us that is the one that He sees needs to be here.
Our Memorial Day weekend has been very busy, with Jason's 20 year class reunion and a lot of family time. Now, today, we are catching up on all the cleaning we haven't been able to get done over the weekend. I NEED MY HOUSE TO BE IN ORDER!!! I still feel the affects of the surgery I had, so I am frustrated that I can't just clean my house without taking a break about every 15 minutes. But this is just minor. I hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. I can't think of anyone more deserving to adopt a child than you two. We'll be praying for you and your family but we know for sure that whoever this child may be coming into your home couldn't wish for better parents.
