We just received the call! Our case worker said DHS officially accepted our application. Now they just have to put us into their system which should be by tomorrow and we are officially open. We could get a call as early as tomorrow!
We still have so much we should do, but I guess no one is ever 100% ready.
We are scared, and happy, and empathetic, and torn, and determined, and anxious, and excited.
But mostly we are so full of love.
