In the begining...

Oh, the thoughts running through my head! The only thing we are "sure" of is that we want to give foster parenting a go. Beyond that (which county, age, how many at a time, race...etc...) is still up in the air. I am just itching to be about 10 steps from where we are now. Classes done, home study done and getting that beloved first call!
Just like infertility, there is a lot of waiting. So far this week, I've made some phone calls to my contact (former social worker my boss knows) and to Franklin County Children Services. On day 2 of waiting for both to return email/call. My plan for tomorrow is to move things along and pester a little more (yet another thing I've learned through IF...)
I started this blog because I was SO inspired by the (few) blogs I've read by truly amazing women who made me realize I could also do this. To you women, I say thank you for blazing the trail we are about to begin!


  1. So excited to watch your story unfold. Its true there is a lot of waiting but when you get the call its well worth the wait. I can't wait to see whats in store for your family!

  2. Congratulations!!! Expect the unexpected and be as open as you can. You will be amazed at what will drop on your doorstep.

  3. Glad you stopped by and that our crazy life story may give you lots of HOPE! Just take the next step and then the next one! You'll know if a door closes. Then move on to the next. But don't ever give up! This will be exciting to get to follow your blog from the beginning!
