So on the fostering front... after many delays working with the state to get our foster license squared away, our caseworker essentially blew us off, due to the terrible understaffing there. So we ended up transferring to a private agency after all, and they got to work helping us right away.
We got home from vacation a couple of weeks ago, and our license showed up in the mail that day. A few days after that, we got a call for a placement, which we accepted.
It's a boy!
And a girl!
Twins. Brand new. If weighed together they tipped the scale at all of eight pounds.
They are adorable and hilarious and we are in love with them.
