Really, Officially Licensed

Yesterday, our agency called. I have my phone set to a funny ring for when an unknown number calls so that I am sure to pick it up. The wonderful woman I spoke with a little over a week ago called to let me know that we are officially licensed and eligible for placement as of yesterday. She also told me we will be getting some information in the mail regarding who our social worker will be. I thanked her several times for calling. D and I are both pretty excited and thrilled to have this next step completed. The next phone call really will be the big one.

Last night, we recorded our second podcast, this time without T & W (which was scary). It is not perfect but hopefully we will get better as we do it more often. The episode is an update on where we are at as well as about the reactions we have gotten from people over the past year as we have talked with them about becoming foster parents, including one crazy, hilarious, weird reaction we got at church one afternoon.  We will make sure to let you know when it is posted.

  1. I was so glad to see this update come across! We are so excited for you guys! We’re looking forward to seeing the update that you got THE call! I’m also looking forward to listening to the podcast and appreciate your secondary ministry of sharing your experiences with us.

  2. Congrats! We got our OK to move forward last week (fully certified and licensed) and met our new team of partners.
    Like you – we’re just waiting on that next call.
    Congrats on reaching your “due date!” 🙂

  3. D & K — Hallelujah, it’s about time. Only in Michigan can the gov’t make waiting so hard. As an aside, everytime I look at the “D & K” from the blog I think about playing donkey kong on nintendo 64 back in the day. I hope this is OK.
