An Update

As of last night we finished our final training in this foster parent journey of ours. We now have to wait for our FBI clearance and finalize our home study and then we will be all set for placements!

Yesterday I had to get a TB test done to be read on Wednesday. Chatting with the nurse I reminisced about the stick tests they preformed when I was a kid. Remember the old tests that were four quadrants? The nurse didn't. She was too young to remember. I am only 33 for goodness sake!

The things I do for children...

We didn't have that stick test your talking about in the North. We had a huge gun looking thing that punctured your arm (felt like to the other side...) and it left a huge scar in the shape of a circle with 6 entry points. They don't do that anymore. But you can tell a persons age if you look at their arm...at least you can tell their generation. I'm 39 and everyone in and around my age have these scars. On another note, way to go...can you imagine? There's a child out there, and your about to change a life. Thats huge. Congratulations.

WOw, that sure is moving along rather quickly! We're still waiting for our fingerprinting approval from the Immigration offices....almost 3 MONTHS later. It is HARD to wait!

It is sad when teachers, doctors, nurses, sales people, are all younger then you. That is when you know you are getting old. I'm almost 39 and I remember the 4 pricks they use to do. I don't remember the gun one. Sure glad I didn't get that one!
