Ha, it has been a while, and I’ve really enjoyed my time off. Remy’s sleeping now (well, right now, not in general – he still sleeps like shit) and OccDoc is working out, and I’m procrastinating so I thought I’d take some time to update my blog. Remy is just over 14 months old, and we are really enjoying our second summer together. Every day he just amazes me. I can’t believe how lucky we are to have this little guy in our lives. Life is pretty sweet for our family. OccDoc and I have been working very hard and been very busy with our latest endeavor.
We’ve spent the last two months working on paperwork and training to be foster parents. We’re really very close to being licensed and opening our home. We still have to get the rooms ready in our house, but it’s minor stuff like some painting and assembling furniture. Craziness. We’re both excited about our next step, but we also have those moments of ‘what are we doing?!‘ Of course, even when I was pregnant with Remy we still had those moments of ‘what are we doing?!‘, too, so I think it’s normal.
So, yeah, I’m not sure how much I’ll update our foster care journey here, but I thought I should put it out there and start sharing the news with people. It’s pretty possible we could have a child/children placed with us before this summer is over with.
I love watching Remy interact with other kids, especially when he gets to hang out with slightly older children. I knew we’d never be a one and done family, and foster care has been something that we’ve talked about and thought about for years and years. There’s no time like the present, so we’re jumping in and getting on the roller coaster. Thanks for your positive vibes you’re sending our way, friends. Enjoy your summer!
