It was just about one year ago that Bill and I began a journey that will probably change us forever.
Before I introduce you to the little person that has invaded our home with sweet baby love, I wanted to share the journal entry I wrote back in October, 2016.
Today was the day we took our official first step in our foster care journey. Bill and I attended an information session at a local foster care agency.
We met A and S who were very nice.
Afterwards, we went across the street to a diner for some coffee and dessert. It was then that we decided to move ahead.
Bill had to take multiple work calls tonight so I was playing around on my phone. On the USCCB website the readings were:
First Reading: Ephesians 5:21-33 (Our wedding's first reading)
Responsorial Psalm- Ps128:1-2 3-5 Blessed are those who fear the Lord. (I sure was fearful of what the Lord seemed to be asking us to do!)
Gospel: Luke 13 18-21 The kingdom of God. What is it like?
It is like a mustard seed that a man took and planted in the garden. When it was fully grown, it became a large bush and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.
(There's an analogy to be made there, I think)
It may be the first official step, however, I do believe the seeds have been planted throughout my entire life.
Baby J came to us on October 11th. She was 3 days old.
