Craving Satisfied!

I got to go the kids this weekend! We spent TWO great days together! I'm sorry that Bobby couldn't go, but at least one of us got to be there. John is now holding my hand, Stacey giggles when I smile at her, and Destiny is just a joy to be around, out going and rambunctious! I'm hoping to get more news on when they might be home this week. We're really praying that criminal background check through. My realtor told me she had a bit of a problem with it as well, but it only took a few days to figure out. I brought home some of their toys and things with my in faith that they won't miss them for long.
My mom told me today that she's planning to have a "Cowboy Camp" with the kids at her house. They're going to set up a tent and spend the night outside, roast marshmellows and hot dogs, and be cowboys and cowgirls. She's already decided which horse will be there's! She has an old mare who she uses for kids that they will start on and she'll be training Starbuck, the kids' horse, while they get used to riding. Of course it won't happen for a while. They'll have to get used to the horses and learn safety stuff first. But oh how fun! Here's to getting a placement date soon!!!!!!

The excitement grows!

I've been holding my breath all week! Our social worker told us yesterday that we're almost there! All we need to wait for is Bobby's criminal background check to come in and we'll get a placement date. Hopefully it'll come in this week. Until then, I've been talking to the kids foster parents almost daily to get my fix on how they're doing! I've also been working on their rooms. I've actually almost finished and will post pics later. Our house has gone from being empty and boring to festive!! I love it!

Here we are! This was taken after our first meeting.
