Our first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb 3rd. at 6:00P.M. Basically this just tells us what we are about to embark on, the pro's and con's etc..we have already been through this and we know that we are up for it, but we have to do it again, it's routine procedure.
We have a home study ( which includes background checks, physicals for everyone in the family, home visits etc..) because we have to go through all of that in order to be a caring home for the agency we work with, BUT.. the state is making us redo it all..I'm a little bummed, because it takes a while to complete, but I "kinda" understand and we are willing to do what ever it takes to bring our new little love home. We do already have our CPR and first aid certification, so I'm sure we won't have to do that again.. I I know... it's only been a couple of weeks since the decision was made, and I'm ready for my little one TODAY..I'm in for a long road..:(
I would be lying if I said that we weren't completely freaked out at the possibility of loving and loosing a child, it's a chance we have to take. We have to just pray that we can handle what ever happens and just know that we will give each child that comes through our door all the love their little hearts can handle. God has a child(or children) for us, and when it's time, he will bring them home.
**note to self** be patient
