Happy Friday everyone.
My Friday ended with a stomach full of cake and ice cream. “What is the celebration?” , you might ask… Well, we all survived this crazy week. 🙂 🙂
I guess this week was not crazier than any other week but it was sure good to eat our delicious cake made by my daughter and I. Plus yummy homemade banana ice cream made by my husband. I always prefer banana ice cream over store brought ice cream. It is simple to make and delicious. You definitely need to try it if you haven’t already.
So this week, my husband and I actually finished all the applications for the foster/adopt program. I know this is only the beginning. But I am happy that we are taking steps forward.
On to the child development classes, CPR, and physical exams/tests….
I understand why we need to take these steps in our journey. It might be time consuming but it is great that the county is trying to weed out the people who just don’t get what being a parent is. It is great for everyone to be up-to-date on raising and protecting a child.
But I honestly think these classes (child development and CPR) should be a requirement for anyone who might be getting pregnant or for parents before they take their baby home. Just think about how many things could have been prevented if people only knew…
As I was hanging up my daughter’s clothes today, I was scanning her closet and realized that she might be sharing her closet with another child soon. And I wondered how she would feel about sharing her closet which is full of clothes and toys. So I asked. (We are very open about this while process with her.) She replied to me that she wants to share her whole room and she wants a sister to sleep in the room too.
I have been really amazed by how much she is ready for this road ahead of us. She is so eager to open her heart and her life to share with other children. I know this is God’s doing. He has a purpose for my daughter. He has given her so much strength and understanding even though she is still so young.
Much love to the world,
