We are OFFICIALLY Licensed for foster/adoptive placements!
What does that mean? That means our agency can now consider us for and place us with children! We do have some choice/say in this, but they must take the first step. We have provided them with a little list that they work from to help match us and the children. We’ve asked for a child/children between newborn and six years old.
The child or children will be considered in foster care with us until they are potential up for adoption OR if they already are up for adoption, they would be considered in foster care with us until the adoption is final. That’s in a nutshell, but it’s a little more complicated than that.
However, we could receive a placement at any time now!!! Sooooo…. we are asking for prayers!! Please pray that the hearts of our forever children are being prepared to accept us, and that our hearts and the hearts of our family are being prepared to accept them. We also pray that God shows us how we will provide for them in the best way in all areas!
We feel very excited about the possibility of forming our new family soon! A few things everyone needs to know going forward…. once children are placed with us, the information we can share will be limited… including pictures… until we are able to officially adopt them. This will be difficult, but it’s in the best interested for everyone, and we are legally bound to privacy. I will post updates, but they will not be in detail. Just a heads up.
We are currently being considered for a placement, and we ask for prayers about this process and that God’s hand be the one guiding it!
As always, thank you ALL for your continued support! We know we would not have made it to this point without each and every one of you!
April & Chris
