The start of a new journey...

So this weekend Michael and I will be attending our first day of training to become foster parents! We have decided to try the "foster to adopt" program with Covenant Kids based out of Arlington. The training includes 30 hours of classes with a mandatory CPR certification and then we do our homestudy and pray to be matched with a low risk (low risk of being placed back with his/her parents) child that will fit with in our small age range. Because of our jobs we won't be able to take on a newborn but the idea of have 2 toddlers in the house is daunting so we're asking for a child (preferably a girl) b/w the ages of 6-14 months. So since we're really limiting ourselves I have no idea how long we will wait for a placement. We'll just take it one step at a time and see what the Lord has planned!
