new mantra

Everything is in such flux, and plans/jobs/choices seem to be changing so rapidly it's actually hard to keep up with it all. Earlier this week we called my parents for some advice and my dad said, "Open all the doors you can and close as few as possible." It was just what I needed to hear- we don't need to have it all worked out just yet, we don't need to have all the answers. Which is good because we're kinda stuck right now. Stuck waiting. Stuck in the in-between.

For example: we still have several steps to complete for our foster care license, but the final step is the home study, which can't be completed until we are in a larger home. But we can't get out of our lease and find a new place until we know if the county will place the kids with us. But they won't agree to that until we have a license.....

So in the meantime, we will keep moving forward. We still have many unanswered questions and hopefully it will all become more clear over the next week and we can feel confident with our next step. We haven't closed any doors yet, and we won't until we have to.
