On Sunday we had our "Licensing Shower" (special thanks to K. & L. for putting it together)! So, I have to say that
During the shower we took the time to answer any questions about the foster care process and what our intentions are. Surprisingly, no one asked any questions about fertility issues. I half anticipated the "personal questions" to come up, but they didn't. And I have to admit I was relieved. The shower really was focused on the future, the foster care, the love we have in our hearts and our home, and not the past. Again, I have to be thankful for our friends and family who have enough compassion and understanding to know that although foster care isn't permanent, it is a wonderful option and the best option for us.
By the way.. I am super excited. I don't think I'll be nervous until we get our first phone call!
