Not pregnant. Sorry. But September has been a wonderful month. Other than the monsoon...I hate monsoon season. So this month first I got in touch with my Mexican roots and learned a Folklorico dance. It was so much fun to dress up and be a full mexican for a night :) But that isn't the announcement.
WE STARTED FOSTER CARE to ADOPT!
We had orientation last week and are 100% sure this is what we should be doing. What we are doing is Foster Care with the option to Adopt. We decided we are happy to take 2 kids age 0-5, 3 if there is a family. The main goal for Foster Care is to reunite the family back together. However IF the child or children are put up for adoption we get the chance to keep them. This is our plan.
We have always wanted to do this. Right now our house is just feeling to big for two people. We want a family so bad unfortunately there is another plan for us. So in the mean time we might at well open our house up for kids to feel loved.
The next step is to start our classes about how this program works and working with kids. We start on Oct 21 and we should be completely licensed by my birthday.
We are so excited for this. Of course it puts a damper on any travel outside of Arizona. But that is ok. We will work it out.
