What's Going On At My House

I've been trying and trying to think of a way to write this post.

We've had some excitement around our house--yes we have!!

Almost more excitement than I can stand!

Our two little foster boys had birth dad's rights terminated this past week.

Making them "wards of the state" (I hate that phrase--it sounds so cold)

Officially opening up our home for more foster children.

Did I mention that we are licensed for a maximum of three children?

Friday morning I got a phone call asking if we could take twin two year olds and their three year old brother.

I laughed ( kind of like Sarah in the Bible when God told her she would have a baby )  and then told the case worker that we would pray about it.

I was expecting my husband ( the calm rational one ) to say "no".

Instead he said "I know it doesn't make any sense, but I think we are supposed to say yes".

By 6:30 Friday night we had three more little people in our home.

Ages of children living in our home are 9, 7, 3, 2, 2, 2, 18months.

Make a note of the fact that there are three two year olds---I hope I survive. :)

Oh, and one of the twins is a girl. :)

Saying "yes" to God is one wild adventure!!!!!
