What can I say?

Sometimes I just don't know what to pray for in the life of this little girl. If it is His will we would love to have her stay a part of our lives. We are attached to her and could totally picture her in our family. At the same time I don't want her parents to fail at getting her back. I want them to be restored. For God to work in their lives. I'm learning that foster care can leave you feeling heartbroken. One side has to say goodbye.
But we can pray. 
God knows.
He is amazing. 
He has good for her.

The Song of Foster Care

Two posts in one day! I'm on a roll! I actually just wanted to share something I came across the other day. If there is any song that describes the heart of foster care it's this one. So worth listening to. It's absolutely beautiful. Please pause the music bar at the top of my page before listening to the video.

Time for an Update

We get asked on about a weekly basis if we know how long we will have Baby with us. So I figured our blog friends are probably wondering the same thing. Basically her case is a foster case so the goal is to reunify her with her parents. At the same time it sounds like Baby has an awesome judge who tries as best as he can to move things along quickly. Next month is the next court date where we should hear if they plan to continue along to reunification. We are loving being foster parents and pray that God's will be done in Baby's life. If she gets to go home we will be happy for her and her parents but will miss her. And if she stays we will be happy to get the chance to be her family but will be sad for all her parents lost. Fostering is definitely a roller coaster of emotions. I'm so glad that God lead us here though. I would have never had imagined that one day hubby and I would be foster parents!! We all make our plans of what we want to do in life, who we want to be. But just remember to follow after Him. His plans are so much better.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. -Jeremiah 29:11

Schools Out!!

Woohoo!! I thought it would never happen! But it's true. The kids are out on summer break!

We managed to do another year of homeschooling even while taking two foster placements!

 I can't tell you how good that feels.

Right now I'm working on finishing up the portfolios and running baby to visits. She has also recently been doing some therapist visits and has started teething! Busy girl! Soccer is just about over for the season and hopefully our weekends will slow down here. I'm really hoping to get some geocaching and other fun family activities in! So far I am loving the warm weather here. The Sunday before Memorial Day our church had a big picnic on the church lawn. It was just perfect. I'm a summer girl at heart and after a very long winter it was so nice to be outside enjoying a cookout. Looking forward to many more!

Oh how I love summer days!!
