No, I’m not going political. I think I’d lose a couple if I went there.
Rather, I am surrounded by exciting things as far as foster care! I have an on-line friend who just received her license to do foster care. And I have an old sorority sister who is currently in the process of going through the classes. It’s so exciting to get to see this process from the outside. I feel like I should be knitting sweaters.. Ha! They’re both “pregnant” with children who may already be born and out there and needing a foster mom. I just love the fact that I will get to see the changes in those foster children and the growth of those families. It’s just so darn cool.
*And* I have another friend who just adopted two children. I have lots of friends who have adopted, but these children are Native American!!! That’s huge! I actually wrote a huge long post about ICWA and caring for Native American foster children that I never posted (I might get back to it soon…). Long story short, it’s hard to adopt Native American foster children. I got chill bumps when I found out that these adoptions had finally gone through–they were literally years in the making. I’ve been hearing for years that the tribe is changing and that there will be more adoptions in the future. And I really am hopeful that it’s true.
For now I’m just tickled about all of the wonderful and exciting changes that I see all around me!
