MAPP Graduation

Tonight is our last meeting we have to attend to complete our certification classes. Last night I felt like a little kid waiting for school to start. I kept waking up thinking it was time to get up. I woke up at 3 and 5 this morning ready to get out of bed. Thank God I'm not tired now. This session will be a panel discussion showing all aspects of the foster care system from when an investigation begins all the way through TPR and adoption. There will be a former foster child there to speak about their life in the system also. We will have a dinner sponsored by the Foster Parents association, and get to meet several of them. Both my parents and Rob's parents will attend with us since they will be part of our support system once we receive a placement. I'm excited about tonight's meeting. It's putting us another step closer to our goal. We're also 30 days into the 90 day period that the home study case worker has to complete our home study. Dear Lord, let it not take the whole 90 days. I guess I'll have to change my countdown from completing MAPP classes to home study approval. It's still hard to believe that we're at this point all ready.

Congrats! It passes so quickly. Before you know it you'll be 2 years and 9 children into fostering. Well, I hope yours get to stick around though. You are guaranteed to have drama and excitement now!
