With butterflies in my stomach, flushed cheeks, and sweaty palms, I am excited to announce that we are officially licensed foster parents!!!

At 8:30 this morning I saw D.CF’s number pop up on my caller ID.  I frantically squeaked out a “Hello?” and was greeted with “Congratulations Mrs. S, I’m calling to let you know that you are a licensed foster parent! You can expect calls for placement to start rolling in any day now!”

If I wasn’t at work with nosey coworkers within earshot I would have squealed like a school girl and kissed the phone.  Somehow I managed to finish the phone call with composure before running to the closest conference room where I could call Andrea while jumping up and down.  And during that call I did kiss the phone : )

When I returned to my desk, I found an email from our SW congratulating us. It was such a sweet email, it really warmed my heart.  That is, until I got to the last line:

“And I wouldn’t be surprised if you were called today (hahaha). “

That made my heart stop.  Holy crap.  Today?!  I have got to learn how to install those car seats ASAP!
