Commencing Countdown, Engines On...

Well, it's official. We are finally certified to be foster parents - our license arrived in the mail today. Whoo-hoo! Perhaps countdown is not the right word, however, because we really don't know when the count down ends. That makes for one fucked up astronaut.

I am finally starting to get excited... I have been pretty nervous up until now - still not sure about the whole, kid could leave at any time thing, but I guess I don't have too much choice.

We will meet our new caseworker next week - somehow we must have been expedited, our approval was final on September 20 (my mom's birthday, a good omen she says) and they told us it would take 30 days after that to process the license, but clearly ours was faster.

Well, kids, let the waiting begin...
