Update on my journey!
 
Please do NOT share on FaceBook yet!

DH and I went to the event at DSS tonight. We ended up missing the entire presentation (despite arriving early). lol The woman that I've been waiting to talk to was there and we talked instead. :)http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/images/blank.gif 45 minutes!

The first woman I talked to was wrong about the fact that we could sign up and ONLY take kids that are already legally free. We HAVE to be willing to take on short-term foster kids too. As she was telling us this it was all I could do not to cry. DH had made it pretty clear just last week that he didn't want to foster right now. However, Chris surprised me and has actually agreed to foster!

We are talking about altering our initial ages since most of the kids will be short-term. We may also be reevaluating what needs we are willing to accept.

It's officially official. We are starting the process! She's mailing out the application and paperwork on Monday. Classes don't start until January. (A little further out than I'd like but it works.)

Thanks ladies. We're telling family at Thanksgiving and maybe a few select people. But I'm not making a BIG announcement until at least January.

For us, it wasn't a matter of if, it was a matter of when we'd foster. DH just took a little longer to warm up to doing it now. He told me yesterday "I had thought about it before we ever even met. But at the time I was thinking of it being something I'd do in the distant future. But now I've realized that this IS the distant future." :lol:
