DH and I have met with a woman from the Social Services agency we're going to use and we start our Foster Licensing classes on Wednesday this week. It's an 11 week commitment and then we have to go through a series of home studies, background checks/fingerprinting and then we'll be licensed as foster parents. We're hoping to, at some point, be placed with a child between the ages of 0-2 or 0-3. We're open to almost any child who has a need for a loving home. I have this strong feeling that we are being led through this process in such a flawless way that there MUST be a child out there waiting for us to complete this process so that he/she can finally have a forever home with us. There have just been so many things that have seemed to be roadblocks (however minor they might seem on the outside, they were major stressors for us) that have just miraculously been fixed in ways I never could have imagined on my own.

If any of you are the praying type, please pray for us. For those who prefer to send positive thoughts our way, we'll take those, too. :) And for those who don't know me, I was a "regular" on this board up until several months ago when my DH and I decided to call it quits with TTC (it would have been 4 years of TTC next month and it'll be 2 years since our loss this upcoming June). I know that some here wanted to hear an update, so I hope I'm not intruding too much. For those who have moved on to PAL and are lurking here, I have been "lurking" over there now and then to see how you all are doing! :)

Thanks, Courtney! I'm hoping that we can be "waiting for our little ones to arrive" together! Fingers crossed for you to get a BFP VERY VERY soon!

Tee, sounds like things are falling into place. I know from family and friends that have done foster to adopt that the journey you are on now is not without its own struggles. I hope though they are few and far between and that you find that special child to welcome into your family soon. Thank you for the update and please keep us posted!

Tee I come back from time to time to check on the old timers and see if anyone gets that magical BFP, this is very exciting to read and I can't wait to hear about your journey as a foster to adopt parent, I have seriously considered doing the same thing...... Prayers are coming!! =)

Thanks for the update. It sounds like you are making progress in your journey to have a child to love. I didn't realize that it was so involved when it comes to the fostering process but I guess that makes sense. It must feel good for every step you can check off which means are are that much closer. It sounds like you are doing good. Sending you good wishes!!!
