    Although I haven’t blogged lately a lot… 

    Although I haven’t blogged lately a lot has happened. Yesterday we finished our last PRIDE foster care class, and are now one step closer to parenthood. Unfortunately, we have had some bumps in the road here at home, and it has prolonged our journey. About two weeks ago I got a wild hair and decided we were going to move out of our joint living situation into an apartment. My mom and her boyfriend are being very uncooperative about getting the house ready for the home inspection and I just couldn’t take it anymore! So I thought that the best idea was to move into an apartment where we wouldn’t have to rely on anyone else to get the ball rolling. Well they were stunned and said that they needed three months notice before they would consider letting us out of our agreement. Needless to say that our home study, which was supposed to have happened on 4/21 was canceled! After I calmed down and hubbie and I talked about everything, we decided that us moving was in fact not the best option for us, so after all that we decided to stay here and try to make it work. Things have been a little better between the four of us, for now, and I’ve decided to wait until June to reschedule the home visit, I just need more time to get the house in tip top shape. We still need to move all my mom’s crap out of our extra bedroom, paint, build a wall to enclose our bedroom, and get some new area rugs. Not to mention all the baby stuff we still need! Its quite overwhelming. Plus Im not doing so well in my classes right now, Im so stressed out that I cannot focus! Life is only going to get harder! So please pray for me??

      Hey sweetie. Sorry this is the first time I’m getting to your blog since you visited last month. I had every intention of doing so, I just kept spacing it. Sorry to hear your mom isn’t being more cooperative with the adoption process. That would be totally frustrating. I hope things get to moving sooner than later.

      Big hug!

    How am I supposed to get this house read … 

    How am I supposed to get this house ready for a child! When I have no extra money?? We have to paint, lay carpet, move all of our bedroom stuff into another bedroom so that the baby can have the room with the window; and I still need to get all the baby essentials. At least when your pregnant you get a baby shower. When your doing foster/ adopt everything is so uncertain, it feel like no one can understand.
    I really need help managing all of this.

      Hi~ I just found you today through Mel. I wish I could offer some help, and although I am not sure how I could I just wanted to tell you that I’m sending you all kinds of positive thoughts and wishing you well.

    Oh! the stress!! Yesterday was so horrib … 

    Oh! the stress!!
    Yesterday was so horrible! I had a chemistry test yesterday afternoon, like I said below, and I also had a chemistry lab report due before the exam started. Well I couldn’t figure out the lab and everyone in our study group was telling me different things, so I was getting really worked up and decided to go and talk to the teacher, by the time I got there I was a nervous crying wreck, and I just bursted into tears! Poor guy, my professor, he is this sweet little old man. Im so embarrassed. I hate not being able to control my emotions, I feel like Im always on the verge of tears. My head is so full. Full of stuff about foster/adopt, full of chemistry and math facts, all waiting to fall out! LOL
    I really could use your supportive words 🙂
