An unexpected snag…

We have encountered a snag in our foster care process. As it turns out, there is a bit of a backup in the training in our area, and the entire process may be pushed back a few months. I have to admit that I am incredibly devastated. My husband and I were (and are) 100% in, and ready to move forward. It just is difficult that we are brought to a halt, so unexpectedly.

If you have read my blog in the last week, I have discussed how my husband and I have been praying about the decision on whether we should have our bio-baby first, or foster/adopted-child. Pushing back the foster training a few months makes me wonder if that means we should begin trying to have our bio-baby first?

These questions are so difficult and I wish making a family decisions were easier! Luckily, my anxiety is rather low, considering the situation!

Thank you for listening to my venting!

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about the hold up with your fostering/adoption, my heart , thoughts, and prayers go out to you both. I understand how heartbreaking it is when you are ready and so very much wanting to start a family and things outside your control are getting in your way and in this case also making an already difficult decision that much harder. I hope everything works out.

  2. I’m sorry that you have to wait a couple of months. I know how excited you and your husband are to foster/adopt. Everything happens for a reason though. Continue to pray, along with your husband and the answers will come to you :). If you end up pregnant before fostering a child, then that’s just how the plan was suppose to be all along! Good luck to you guys. xoxo

  3. Same-ish thing happened right after I decided to do the online dating thing. Right after I signed up, my computer crashed!! Sometimes God wants to see how serious we are with the opportunities He gives us. Keep going forward. I know the waiting sucks, but it will be all that more awesome when it does happen. 🙂
