Today is the final day of our foster/adoption classes. It’s such a bittersweet ending because we got to know a great couple along the way, and had a great instructor (Udonna Williams) that we will miss dearly!
To say we have been through a
little LOT in these past few weeks, would be an understatement. We haven’t even driven this much, this often, ever (around 180 miles daily) and getting home around 11:30pm on average, has been taken it’s toll. But one thing that we recognized is that we have become stronger, pushed our limits further than ever before, and realized a whole new “reality” out there that is just waiting for us to explore.
Shane and I have heard so many things from other people (mostly positive, thank you to those people), but some
words of advice opinions have not been nice, to say the least. Of course everyone is entitled to their doubts, fears, and worries about what our future may hold or how this may affect Brielle, but have you ever thought that we thought about this, way before you did? We prayed and we waited for God to show us when is the right time to open this door into an unknown world. We can’t predict the future, but we do know that we will try our hardest to make sure that we always remember to put God first, and everything else will just fall into place.
We are beyond excited to finish this paperwork journey (if you remember my post here where we first talked about this journey, then you’d be surprised to know that we only have another home visit/inspection and our home study to be completely ready) and actually get to open our doors to another child and share all that we can with them. Just to either be that bright light that got them through a dark period so they can be re-unified with their family, or to be that additional blessing in our family and add to the Johnsons, is all in Gods hands, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds!
I hope you definitely stay along for the ride of our lives, and if you ever want to find me to connect on any social media platforms, you can always find me here:
