More delays than ORD

The Nugget got sick the night before the last foster parenting class, so I stayed home to comfort him with a Bob the Builder marathon, Pedialyte popsicles, Baby Mum-Mums, and an unlimited juice bar. (He's made a full recovery, but the Bob the Builder song is still stuck in my head.) Hubby went alone to the class, so he's done with that part.

Upon calling the county to schedule a makeup class, the next one I can do is April 30. I guess that gives Hubby plenty of time to finish the essay portion of the paperwork. So now, we're looking at being licensed foster parents in late May/June, or even later, because I hear that summer is a pretty busy time for CPS.

Not to be outdone, our CPS check for the adoption update is stuck somewhere in limbo. Our homestudy agency sent it on to CPS over 3 weeks ago, and it still has not cleared.

Two years ago, we ran into similar delays in the adoption process, and I cried myself to sleep every night. Now, I just wash my hands of the stress - I can't do anything about it, so why freak out? See, I'm growing!


  1. You ARE growing! Wow, Annie. What a ride. You and Rick are persevering and with such great attitudes. Amazing!

  2. Good for you Annie! You are an encouragement indeed! I pray for a faster than you are expecting process. :)
