Getting our license

LT Wonderful and I are getting our license to be Foster Care Providers.  

I'm scared and excited all at the same time. 

I think that's normal.

Isn't it?

(Please say yes.)

So tonight we go to another three hour. 

We fill out more paperwork. 

Later we'll get fingerprinted again. 

And have another home inspection. 

And, hopefully in the next 6 months we'll be blessed to love on a kiddo that really could use a demonstration of love. 

Then when they leave our hearts will break.

But the cracks will help our hearts grow more. 

We'll just keep on loving and loving

Until there are no more kids to love on, or our girls come home (in which case we'll do a happy dance and love and love more)


Until God moves us on to Nicaragua. 

So tonight is another beginning. 

But really it's just another step in our journey to show love.
