That is awesome! DH and I are foster parents since just June of this year (our foster son (first placement) has been in our home since July). We really hope to adopt him and other foster children at some point. Welcome to our group! How old are your kiddos now?

thank you Marla and Beth.

Marla I hear that a lot. to me though, I do it not so much b/c of patience but b/c its what my daily life is, so I complete it. if I prayed for patience some days, I'd get frustrated. so I just focus on staying on track.

Beth my oldest (whom I'll be officially adopting in 2009) is 14 and finishing up 8th grade. my one and so far only dd is almost 9 and finishing up in the spring, 3rd grade, then there is my almost 6 and 4 yr olds (feb birthdays) the 5 yr old is in K and I do preK stuff w/the 3 yr old. and the youngest is 15 1/2 mos. they keep me pretty busy thats for sure! and most days I think thats a good thing I've wanted to adopt since I was a late teen/early twenties and plenty happy to be following that dream. dh is very supportive of it.

looking forward to chatting w/all of you.

I'm thinking of emailing my case manager to see where they are at w/my home study packet.

Happy early Thanksgiving e/o
