Things are really moving forward. Our licensing specialist came out last week and interviewed me and a few of the kids, she will be back today to finish my interview and the rest of the kids. Our home inspection is scheduled for next Wednesday, we have frantically been trying to get ready for that. We don't have too much to do but it is a little nerve racking knowing someone will be coming into your home and looking over everything. Good thing I like to keep a clean house or this process could become very overwhelming. I have taken the opportunity to organize practically every cupboard and drawer in my house, I know they won't care but having someone look in them could be embarrassing so it's kind of the kick in the pants that I need to get it done anyways! My daughter is having oral surgery the same day as the inspection, definitely not ideal but there was no other time they would be in our area and I really don't want to delay our licensing so we will make it work. We just finished our 9th class last night, just 2 more to go! I need to schedule our doctor appointments and our CPR class and finish getting some of the paper work together and we will be set. Our specialist said she hoped to have us licensed within 30 days after our last class so for us that would be mid March, crazy! This whole time I have been planning on sometime in May so that is really exciting. After class last night my hubby and I went to Target and bought a crib for our new little one. It is weird buying things for a child we don't even know yet but so fun too! I scored a infant car seat on clearance last week for half off but other than that it is hard to buy things since I won't know the age or sex until we get that first call. I am still a little dazed that this is really happening. I have thought about being a foster mom for as long as I can remember so now that it is actually here it is somewhat surreal. I hope that I am up for it, that my family adjusts well to the changes, and that this experience will be positive for all of us.
