Hurry Up and Wait.

Hurry up and wait. This is seriously the motto of my life right now. I officially submitted all of the my requirements to become a licensed foster parent today. I can not express how excited I am! Now we just wait for our Foster Care Specialist to get our home study written and we will be licensed! I know a couple of people who are or have been foster parents and they've gotten their first placements within a few weeks of getting licensed. On one hand, I can not believe that we are potentially within a few weeks of filling our spare bedroom (which we have dubbed 'The Foster Room'). On the other hand, I'm thinking, "Call Me Already!" I'm more than ready for this.
I've been having dreams of a sweet toddler boy clinging to my shoulder. I can never remember his name, just that he needs me and I love him. Maybe it's my mind trying to prepare me for this exciting journey. It kinda reminded me of the vivid dreams you have when you're pregnant.
Aaah! I'm just so excited. I hate waiting. Now that everything on my end is all done, I'm ready for a placement.
In the mean time, I'll just be decorating the room and buying toys. Lol. Since we decided to accept children 4 and under, I've collected a nice little assortment of toys to fill the room. And I even made this cute little sign to hang in their room. I was trying my hand at some ombre style painting. I have a long way to go, but it still looks cute. I painted the dots with the eraser end of a pencil and cut the words out with my Cricut. Isn't it totally adorable?

Thanks for checking out my blog. Come back soon, I can't wait to share this journey with you.
