Foster Parenting Update

This morning I got a phone call from Alternatives letting us know that our finger printing had come back (apparently all clear :) ) and all we need to do now is get our physicals and TB tests in and they will schedule a Home Study.  I was actually pretty excited about this because I have heard lots of stories about fingerprint problems so it was nice our got where they needed to be on the first try.

Getting that phone call reminded me of all the things we need to get done!  Yesterday Ben started moving our room around to make room for us to move our office in there so we can set up the "new kids" room.  We are going to have to start moving quick or the agency will be ready before we are (which they kinda already are) and I want to try to stay on track and get this all going as soon as possible.

Anyway, that is what is going on!

Sounds like you could be foster parents soon. Do you have your physicals scheduled? When do you think you will have the children?

lol, I am going to schedule them (the physicals) soon and I have no idea when we would get called.

the more kids we get approved for the quicker we will get a phone call. we should get approved for 3 but if our home study is scheduled for any time in October we would say we could only do one right now, if it is scheduled for november or december we would probably say we could do three. it all depends on our car situation.

I am glad Ben's finger prints didn't come back with some name like jamad akbar hussein. That could have been scary! JK:) LOL That is awesome! You all are braver than I am. I don't think I would handle that many kids that well! Good luck with the next steps we are praying for you and keep us posted

That is sooooo exciting. I was just wondering what was going on with the fostering. If you need anything just let me know. How is Kobe doing in school? He is so smart.
Hugs and Kisses,
