But the good news is we are finally through with the foster care process.We are so excited to become foster parents! We should be open this month only a couple of weeks left and we can't wait! Breanna is super duper excited!

Finally after over 7 months of paperwork and classes and home studies. We are finally done with the process! Thank goodness!

I promise I will do better about updating as soon as I have an open date! Please continue to pray for us as we go through this journey.

Getting Closer!

Hello, All!

I have not updated in a while so here it goes...March has gotten off to a quick start. I can't believe it is already here. Jeremy and I just had an anniversary and spent the weekend in Shreveport. We had such a good time! Everything else is going good. As for the adoption, it is going really good.We are getting really close. We have our last home visit/homestudy March 24th. We are getting things finalized at the house that needed to be fixed and then have our TB tests, physicals, CPR/First Aid by March 24th and then after last class we are done!!! We are just ready to be done with class. We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Breanna can't be more excited!

I am getting ready to begin on the room. I will be doing that in the upcoming weeks. That is about all the updates I have for now..

Getting Closer

The month of January is almost gone. The month's seem to just fly by. We have been staying extremely busy with school and work and life. School was out a couple of days for the snow/ice that we got. Breanna was loving that.

We start our classes for foster/adopt on February 3rd. We are super excited about that. We are getting closer and closer to having a new addition in our househould. Breanna is getting really excited. In the upcoming months, I will be getting his/her room ready as far as painting and such. Something that we have put off doing for a while now. We have needed to paint a couple of years ago but never did. We always put it off because we both love to paint but now it has to be done. I will post pictures when we are finished.

Well, that is all for now. Continue to pray for us as we go through all these classes. It won't be long now.. Whoo-hoo!

Upcoming Year

Christmas has come and gone! I hope everybody had a good Christmas. It is my favorite time of the year. Now time to make those New Year Resolutions. It is hard to believe another year is gone. We are looking forward to the exciting new changes that will be coming in the next year for our family.

The home visit was on December 21st. It went very well. It was pretty simple. She just let us know of things we needed to change before the final walk through etc. Our next step is training classes . We are currently waiting to here back from that area as to when those starts. She is looking for us to be finishing up possibly around February, depending on when the classes start. We are getting excited and Breanna is ecstatic! 

I hope everybody has a great week!

Christmas Time

I just love Christmas time. Currently trying to get the rest of our shopping done plus studying for my upcoming finals. I take finals on Dec.13th and I am so ready for this semester to be over with. This has been a tough one. Christmas time is fast approaching. I can't believe that I still have so much shopping to do this close to Christmas. I didn't do well this year about buying things ahead of time. I say every year I am going to start sooner.  Breanna is looking forward to Christmas as always. She has written her list several times. This is always a fun time of the year.

Currently, the adoption process is moving right along.Our background checks are back and we have our first home visit on December 21st.

Exciting New Journey

I hope that everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving and now we are getting a jump start on Christmas. It is so hard to believe that we are this close to Christmas already. I am new to the blog world. I wanted to start a blog with our new journey. We are currently in the process of adopting. Although it will be a stressful journey, it will be an exciting one at the same time. We are currently waiting on our background checks to get back and the next step is for our first home visit.  We should have our first home visit in the next couple of weeks. We are very excited about this new and exciting journey and addition to our little family. Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this very exciting journey.
