Hello! Our social worker called us today to tell us that the parenting classes would begin the 2nd or 3rd week in January and the two trainers are having difficulty lining up their schedules. This is why she hasn't been in touch in two weeks. I call her every week on Thursday and last week when I didn't hear from her, I thought I must have finally annoyed her. Turns out she was working out of the office for the holiday week and she just checked voicemail today. THEN she said she loves our enthusiasm; she looks forward to our calls and that she thinks she will make a one time exception for us. She's going to send us our packet BEFORE the classes. She never does this, she says, since sadly so many people drop out during the course. She wants to meet us! We might actually be able to work on the home study during the parenting classes!! I'm so happy right now! Terrified and freaking out but happy! Thank you for listening and for making this entire process seem 'normal.' You are an amazing group of ladies and I hope your kindness comes back to you a hundredfold!

<--- I've been like this for hours. My DH thinks I'm hilarious. Go ahead and laugh. You know you want to. I am!

Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!

I TOTALLY understand the enthusiasm. I was just like that!

We did both our homestudies during the classes. What are your classes called? MAPP, PRIDE?

Thanks, ladies! I actually received the packet and invitation in the mail today. So right about the time that I was calming down, I got all happy and excited again. Let's put it this way, both DH and I received our own stack of essay questions, 25 pages each and as of now, my stack is complete.

I have looked all over this invitation for the name of the class, or rather the abbreviated name but all it says is 'Training for Resource (Foster and Foster-to-Adopt) Parents'. And sadly, the official start date is February 3rd. I'm so glad she's giving us the paperwork now. I would have been really bummed if the next step was another month away.

Thanks again for all of the support!! I hope I can return the favor someday!

WooHoo!!! I did all those paragraph things right after I got the paperwork too. It took a lot of prodding for me to get DH to do his. LOL.

Oh, I like your style! Sadly, my DH is the talented chef in the family. I am a most excellent dishwasher.
