Weekend One!

WHOO YAAS! Weekend one of foster training complete!! For those of you who want to tune in on our story and may not know a lot about this process, I'll try and fill you in!

We are opening up our home to fostering through the CALL, a Christian organization that recruits and trains families to foster/adopt out of the system. They really come alongside you and are a huge support! They offer all the P.R.I.D.E. (Parents' Resources for Information Development Education) training required in two weekends...you train ALL DAY both Saturday and Sunday and try to process a huge thick book worth of information. I was very happy to already be somewhat familiar with most of the material, so this first weekend wasn't too overwhelming. The trainers were SO GREAT and everyone is so supportive...so many great resources! Next we have CPR class, and working more on the mountain of paperwork before the next weekend! :) 

 One step closer!

One step closer!

No time to relax now...Bae went straight from all-day training to an overnight shift at Maggie House (also, he is already PRIDE certified and he's going through the training for the second time...safe to say he's pretty immersed!!) and I should really get up and finish the laundry so I have clothes for tomorrow! :P A nap sounds pretty good, but at 8:40pm with stuff to do still and rainy weather? Bad idea...
