Looking Forward

Foster Care training is in 18 days, I am getting excited and wishing it would hurry up and get here!

I hope we are approved!

I was talking to our case worker the other day and she said that they are going to get 1 of the 4 assessment done during our training days. Training is 26,27,28 FEB from 9:30am till 3pm! Hey they are even going to provide LUNCH!

Most likley we will finish the last 3 assessment in the next few weeks after training and HOPEFULLY have Approval not long after that...

Then our first placement...
Oh how I have thought about this moment...

What type of child will he/she be?

What reasons is this child coming in to foster care?

How long will this child be in care?

Will I be able to help this child in some small way?

Will I be a good enough parent?

Will my eyes be open to see the things I NEED to see!

How will my bio kids handle it?

Oh I so pray that I will be a good mum to my bio kids and any and all foster kids that come into my home....
