Country Mom here.
My hubby and I are finally sharing our big news! We're going to become foster parents!
We are signed up to take our classes in August and after a home study and some preparations, we're hoping to have our first foster child in our home in early 2011- if not sooner!
This is something we have both felt that the Lord has put on our hearts, and we're anxious to share so much love with a new little person. We're planning to take children from 10months to 3 years old, but probably just one child at a time. We don't want to stretch ourselves too thin, we need to still be able to provide everything to our own children as well.
I know there will be times when watching them go will be hard, but I honestly don't think it could break my heart nearly as much as losing our precious Lila Grace.
Please say a prayer for us, I have a feeling this could be a sometimes scary, but mostly WONDERFUL experience!! :)
