Well, today in our town, we are getting snow! As of this moment I would say a good 8" has fallen. This snow poses a problem because we had our PPD (Tuberculosis) done on Thursday, and it needs to be checked by our doctor either today or tomorrow. Maybe I can snap a digital picture? :)

So far we have completed all of our other paperwork:

Application: January 29, 2010
Finger Prints: January 28, 2010
Physicals: January 28, 2010
Background Check Papers: January 29, 2010
PPD (TB test) Injection: January 28, 2010
Checking TB Injection Site: January 31, 2010 (Negative for both of us)

We start PRIDE class Thursday, February 4, 2010.

Now I am working on a new list of other items we will need. Like car insurance, home owners insurance, income information, etc.

I am getting really excited! If you want to visit an AWESOME forum. Try the Adoption Forum here: ADOPTION FORUM

Moving Forward!

So, we're done with fertility treatments! My heart, and my husband's heart are being led towards adoption. I realize there is still going to be an emotional roller-coaster involved, but at the end of the ride, we are going to be parents. That is something fertility treatments can't guarantee.

We are going through our local Social Services to become foster parents. When you train to be a foster parent, they also complete a home study to approve you for adoption. Our intent is to only foster children already legally free from their biological family.

I know in my heart there is a little girl, little boy, or both waiting for a mom and dad, and they don't even realize that we're waiting for them too.

I am so excited to start this process.

This weekend we painted the bedroom and installed new flooring. We also are getting a bed and I bought the cutest bedding. I guess I need to add some photos to this blog.

So right now we're just waiting to get our training started! Our first initial home check is Wednesday at 3:45. Just a quick run through to check fire detectors etc.

I will keep everyone posted!
