Snow Days

The weather has been pretty harsh this winter but it has also left some beautiful scenery at times.

I have been debating when to bring this up, and I guess now is as good as time as any. I am going to preface it by stating that we have not lost our marbles, at least, not yet.

We are in the process of being licensed as a foster family for a Burmese refugee (or sibling set). We have had to jump through many of the same hoops we did for our adoptions. We have attended the required training, all the paper work has been completed and we were fingerprinted today. There are still some more things to cross off our checklist, but things have been progressing and our time line could be 6 to 12 weeks from this point.

While we realize this decision means we are taking on a lot more responsbility and a non English speaking teenager is unchartered territory, we are excited....and nervous. Mostly excited. We will post more news as it unfolds. Anyone who is interested in this program who happens to live in Phoenix, Michigan, New York (Rochester and Syracuse) or California (San Jose and L.A.) who would like more information about this opportunity, please e-mail me, I won't post your comments but I will respond with the information I have.

Wow! How exciting, generous and brave. Are you fostering to adopt or is this temporary? Good luck with the process and I can't wait to hear more.

The photos btw are beautiful. We would love to take Molly away for a snow weekend.
