Open For Business

After the busiest week in all of creation, we found out today that we are officially open as a foster home.

That's a very exciting and a very scary thing!  If I knew who I was getting, I could feel a little more prepared.  But we don't know.  And we don't know how long we'll get to keep this first kid, if and when we get them.

We're also going to have an adoption home study done.  Not sure when that will take place, but should be soon.  That way if there are any kids that meet our criteria anywhere in AR, we can have an option to adopt them.  Right now, we're limited to the kids in the four northwestern counties in AR.

We're praying for wisdom and discernment.  I'm praying for an open heart for whoever comes into my home - and at the same time praying for open hands if I'm called to give them back to their bio parents.

This process is not for the faint of heart.... and we're just beginning.....

You guys are amazing for opening up your house and your hearts! I can't even imagine the stress you must be under...the unknown is often the hardest to handle! We will continue to pray & we all know that God will provide you the perfect child!
