OMG DH and I got our CPR/AED/First Aid certification today! We have our meeting to set our dates for home study classes and home viewing! I am so excited! My in laws are so supportive and I have already started buying things for the nursery!

Any updates for anyone else?!

No update here. We put everything on hold due to our recent surprise pregnancy and subsequent loss. We're taking a break to heal both physically (I ended up with emergency surgery) and emotionally.

Oh, Augie, I hadn't heard. I'm so sorry for your loss. Prayers for quick physical healing, though I know the emotional healing will take a long time.

Congratulations Mama Anna on your 1 year anniversary!!

I have filed the papers with the lawyer. We'll get a court date around the first few weeks of March hopefully, but it could be later into March, so we'll see.

I just started a new job in the neonatal ICU and I'm so busy lately I barely have time to think. We are on hold for fostering until I get a little more established into our routine and can save up some time off. Then we'll go back to fostering emergency placements.

Less than a year from the time we found out about her to adoption day. But we didn't have to wait for a placement. It was a kinship adoption. We weren't even thinking about adopting until her birthmother asked us to take her.

Beth, That's wonderful about the job!! I bet you're a great nurse! How are you liking it so far? Kayla was in the NICU for a short time after she was born. I loved her nurses.
