This is our fist official update on our foster care licensing process. And FIRST we need to say a HUGE thank you to our friends and family that helped us offset the costs of a van for our family that can fit lots of car seats! A family friend also gave us a really great deal so it all worked out perfectly and SO FAST. God is so good.
On the subject of things going FAST…lately doors in life as far as foster care goes have been WIDE open. The licensing is *supposedly* going to go a lot faster than we were originally told (we should be licensed by Christmas). We got a van within a week of asking around how to make that happen in a budget conscious way. We have gotten random messages from people asking if we needed (blank) because they are no longer using said item.
We have put our trust in the Lord to move and provide if this was the path for us and He has done so. Therefore I can only believe that provision will continue!
We are starting our training classes later this month and have a home study to complete.
We are praying over many things- Our own family as we prepare to open our home and our lives to other kids, over our foster room- that it will be a safe and happy place for the kids that need it, and that families would find healing and restoration and our own small part in that.
Thank you all for your support, prayers, and for being a part of our lives!
