Thank you for helping us raise money for our adoption.

Why is it that when someone tells me about their good new do I want to just break down and cry. I hate how consumed with envy I have because since June. In fact I remember one time being told how a customer at my last job had a miscarriage and I was SO jealous because she actually got to be pregnant for just a moment. I feel like such a horrible person because I felt this way. I know it is stupid but I still can't stop the feelings.

My First EVER

Okay well I have always wanted to blog but never really knew what to say. I am sure that these posts will be full of rambling.

Blaine and I found out June 17, 2009 that we do not have the recipe to make babies. We were gun ho and ready to adopt. and then we started getting prices, WOW, we tried to raise money we got so close and I then became unemployed. We starting thinking more and more about foster care and decided to bit the bullet and get certified. We completed all eight, four hour classes in November. Side note.... I broke my ankle November 6th so this was even more challenging. We completed our classes and then December just disappeared we did our safety check January 13th. We are now waiting for our Resource Family Consultant to give us a call so we can start getting place with children. Going through this process of bringing kids into our home has help teach us some hard lessons, some of which we are still learning. It has also forced us to have some hard talks and take some detailed looks at us as people and who we are and what we want to become.

We also lost my grandfather the end of October, I am still trying to remind myself that he isn't here anymore. It is hard knowing that my children wont get to know him. I sure miss that man.

Well I guess I am done rambling for now.
