I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but truly, all I can think about right now is getting licenses as a foster family and getting our child placement. I was thinking about how natural it all feels, and I realized that foster/adopting is something that I have always wanted to do. When I was a freshman and sophomore in high school I went down to Mexico and worked in an orphanage for a week. That experience truly changed my view on children, because I saw such a lack loving parents first hand. Ever since then I always knew in my heart I wanted to help kids who were without parents.
Like I mentioned in a previous post, it almost feels surreal now that I am actually beginning the licensing process, because it always felt like a distant dream. However, my husband is 100% on board and he supports my dream.
I am feeling incredibly blessed.
Congratulations! You have a tough but rewarding road ahead of you!

Thank you!! 🙂
I just wanted you to know that my wife and I have our foster care license. We fostered two kids a while back for a few weeks. It was great! The only reason we have put a hold on getting more is because we are thinking about moving and that wouldn’t be fair to a child looking for a home to take them in and then leave them. I am curious to see how this goes for you.
