Well, there have been a change of plans in our adopting.
We got all of our classes done, homestudy done, etc...then my hubby got the news that he will be deploying. :( All of our adoption plans came to a striking halt for the next year...
I was telling my social worker all of this, and she tells me that I can't be considered as a potential adoptive family...but we are still able to foster if we wanted to. I didn't know what to think at first. We had never really thought about fostering as we have been so focused on straight adoption.
Over the next couple of weeks, we talked about it long and hard...and my husband and I have decided that YES, I am going to be a foster mom while he is gone!
I have been so excited the more I think about it. Joshua is excited too. :)
