It’s the rhythm of anticipation.

A roller coaster carries us upward toward the peak of the first hill.

Fear is mingled with excitement and adrenaline is rising.

We’ve been on roller coasters before and we’ve seen this one in action but no amount of readying can fully prepare us for this ride.

No turning back. Here we go…

Our official letter of approval as certified resource [foster] parents arrived in the mail on Saturday. Now my heart leaps a little every time the phone rings.

I’m honestly relieved that the timing for this is completely out of our hands now. I trust God with the timing of bringing kids into our home. I do not trust myself… sometimes I hope they’ll call today, sometimes I feel so inadequately prepared.
