Foster care social worker...

She is finally back in the office and she called me today to set up our last home visit. But guess what she couldn't find her planner, so she will call tomorrow or Friday. I'm like ok already, let's get this over with. I did get to ask her what the next step is....she will then be able to write up the "report" on us and send it in to the state. She said after that it should only be approx. 2 weeks and then we will be licensed, finally I'm beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel. This has been a long road. We had to take Pride classes, which teach you how to be a good foster parent. We've had to learn CPR, I'm actually thankful for this b/c I learned how to give CPR to an infant if need be (fingers crossed that we will never have to use this). I'm just so glad it's coming to an end. I hope we get everything submitted before our medicals and drug screenings expire. Yeah, they used the ones we had to get for our adoption. I think we had them done in January so we are pushing it (they are good for a year).
Anyhooo....that's our update. Not to much to get excited about but we are getting there!! When we get licensed I'll be doing cart wheels for sure!

Yay! You're getting there. Hang in there...almost done! Knowing CPR is always a good thing, although I hope you never ever have to use it.
