One week to go!Posted: May 29, 2008
This week in our PRIDE class, the subject was sexual abuse. Of all the classes, this one was the most difficult for us. At the same time, it strengthened our commitment. We both believe there is a reason God pointed us in this direction. And since He brought us to it, He’ll bring us through it. We have faith He has something special in mind for us.
Mr. Man and I want a family. We want at least one of the children placed in our care to be the one we give a “forever family.” The Developer asked if we wanted to adopt or foster, and we said both, and emphasized that we really want to adopt. She said we really should foster first to get the feel of it. That’s okay. It’s not going to be easy, giving a child back, but family reunification is the goal.
I overheard one of the other women talking about having her fingerprints done…seems she had a similar experience! So it wasn’t just me. Others jumped in and commented, too. Cranky lady. Next week, we have class on Tuesday and Thursday, and we’re done with that part!
Still no more progress on that spare closet! But there’s always tomorrow….
