What's Next?

After I published my last post, I realized that it was my 100th! To be honest, I thought about deleting it so that I could write up a post more worthy of a 100th posting, but I didn’t. Even though that post was short, it pretty well summed up our lives right now. Things are so hectic and we are always on the go. Best of all, we are o.k with that!

Class went well last night. Like I said it was called Save-A-Baby. The reminder that we hadn’t gotten in the mail said to be there 10 minutes early and I didn’t want to be late. I’ll just put it this way…we were fast walking through the hospital to not be late (mind you I didn’t want to be late for our 10 minute early deadline). Sure enough, we were the first ones there. I think I stressed my DH out a little. On top of that, I drove and we had to park in a parking garage. I don’t like those so that didn’t go so well.

After we got signed in, other couples started to arrive. Some reason I had it in my head that a wide variety of people would be there. But, that wasn’t the case at all. Five of the couples that were there were about to POP and the other couple had just had their baby six weeks ago. I felt like I needed to stick my belly out. Soon enough our secret came out, but we were happy to learn that one of the instructors adopted her son eleven years ago from K.orea.

During the class, we learned 0-12 CPR and different techniques for addressing choking situations. We got lots of practice using the training dummies. Guess what? We even got let out of class early! It made our one hour trip there and home much easier to handle.

Now, I need to send in our ‘certificates’ showing that we attended.

We did hear from the agency this week. They actually left a message on my work phone. They had even called my DH’s phone. Yikes! They are hosting a speaker on networking later this month and they wanted to know if we wanted to attend. So, we are now registered for that workshop on 3.20.10.

As of right now, we know that two of our three references letters have been submitted. We are going to try to find out about our last tomorrow. We should be getting a call from a social worker soon!

Our last homestudy education class is this Saturday!

Just found your blog...I love your heading...how true that is!
"it's hard to deal with now. But, one day, it will all be worth it."
We're kind of at a crossroads right now...not sure which direction we will take.
I look forward to following your blog.

Wow, I would have had a hard time at that class. BUT, what a beautiful reminder that you are expecting, too! What's next? Only great things!!! Enjoy!

You guys are ABOVE AVERAGE students when you are the first to arrive before the early arrival! Ha ha! Completely understand the parking garage thing. I've taken a few of those classes and they aren't so bad, huh? Good stuff to know! Last class this Saturday! Woot!

You guys are really making awesome progress!! Congrats on all the things you're flying through!! I've read stories of couples waiting months and months for the people they've asked to write reference letters so it sounds like you guys are totally on top of this. :) What a great agency for tracking you down to ask if you were interested in attending a speaker. Enjoy your class tomorrow!! :)

Our agency hasn't even contacted our references yet, grrr!!! I wish I knew what they were waiting for!

I'm like Faith, I would have had trouble being in that class with all the pregnant bellies. But it sounds like you guys did well, and you learned alot! :)
