We have been preparing our home for our future child/children. I honestly think it's harder to prepare for foster kids than it is to prepare for a baby. With a baby you know when they are coming, what they will need, and often times the sex of the baby. With foster kids you don't know any of that. We bought a crib this weekend and put it together today. We still need twin beds/captains bed/trundle bed. We also still need dressers, sheets, blankets, etc. We are waiting for our agency to give us the names and numbers of families in our area so we can do our observation hours. We have some training this week, are making an appointment for fingerprinting and then we will pretty much be done except for our home study. It's fun to set up the rooms for our future kids.

On the infertility journey....I have an appointment tomorrow to see if my meds worked this month. We are anxious to see what happens this time. We have decided that if this cycle doesn't end in pregnancy we are going to stop trying for a few months and pick it back up in the spring. I'm tired of the meds and side effects as well as the monthly disappointment.



  1. Aww, you blog-listed me? How sweet! I think your idea to give it a rest for a few months is a good one. I'm so excited for all these new developments! :)))

  2. Kristy,

    I don't know what age group you guys are wanting to accept for foster kiddos but there are lots of good twin beds at IKEA or at at Target that can be used for little ones or look old enough for teens. It is hard to make a room look little and older all at the same time but those stores are helpful! :) Hope all is going well! Look forward to hearing stories. Our classes starts in two weeks!
