3 days gone

It's like someone took away 3 days of my life. During the last 3 days, Joe and I have spent about 20 hours in classes... Pride Training classes. That stands for something, but what? They are classes we have to take for our foster adoption process. We have learned some interesting stuff and heard some really scary stories. It really is amazing what some people do/don't do to their kids.
We are hoping to get a baby under 18 months to love and adopt. There's a good chance that we will have several different children before we get one that we can adopt, but we think eventually we'll find the child that's supposed to be in our family.
I have so many mixed emotions about all of this. I am excited, scared, anxious, curious, all at the same time. Luckily my sister-in-law Angela has already gone through this, so I hope to be able to go to her a lot for questions and problems that come up. (presumptuous?)
Since all of the classes have been in Plano, we have been staying with the Ashursts. They are amazing, and have taken care of our kids all 3 days, as well as provided us with a place to sleep, dinner, breakfast, and good company. Thanks!

Presumptuous? Not with family!

Hope you're learning some good stuff! When we took those classes they blew our minds.

I didn't even know you guys were doing this. How awesome! You will have to keep everyone up to date via your blog because I am super interested in hearing about the process, etc.
