So much has changed since my last posts...We are building a new home!! AND we are becomming Foster Parents. I am so excited! Most of you know that fostering has been on my heart for awhile now. I have been praying for Matt to feel the same. I was asking the Lord "Why put this on my heart if it is not what is on my husband's?"
I was "told" to just be patient. Well after two years, in the process of looking at our house plans (we have an added 5th bedroom) I casually said to my husband that a 5th bedroom would be perfect for our foster children. He just looked at me for a minute and he said that he could see my heart in my face. The feeling to Foster was so strong in him at that moment that he knew it had to be of the Lord. So....YIPEE!
We have been taking classes now for a few weeks and I have a meeting for our first home visit next friday. It's funny because I know that we are great parents and that we have allot to offer children in need, BUT knowing that you are being evaluated is kind of nerve racking. I know one thing for certain, I am going to be a cleaning machine this week :)
We had a family meeting with the kids and they are all on board with this and know that it is a journey with trials and Joy. Please keep us and our future foster children in your prayers.
