I have not been posting. I have thought about it a lot and actually have a good deal of material that could have been typed out, but I just couldn’t seem to find the energy to write words on this blog. In the next few weeks or months, this blog will evolve into something that I could not predict two years ago when I started it. There is a sadness and a feeling of new when I think about how this blog will be not about TTC, but about our journey through fostering and adoption. The title is still sufficient. We are still in the process of becoming mommies, just not exactly how we dreamed of becoming mommies when we were little girls. Actually, not even when we dreamed when we began this journey two years ago.
For the past eleven weeks we have been attending Foster/Adopt classes every Thursday night from 6-9. The whole process has been a really amazing experience with very special people and even more amazing instructor, who we are blessed enough to become friends with during this process.
I am regretful that I did not use this space to document each class and special moments along the way. But I guess it is not too late to start writing about it. At the beginning, we had to pick what track we are going to be on. Kind of like when you are in high school and have to pick college, vocational school or work track. We have chosen the foster to adopt track. Therefore, that means after our homestudies are written and we are officially approved, we could get a call asking if we will accept a placemement. If we say, “Yes!”, then there will be children brought to our house a few hours later………….More to come later
