Excitment and CHANGE!

God is moving in our lives and we could not be more excited! When Josh and I started dating he commented that he would like to be Foster Parents/Adoption. I on the other hand was DEAD set against it. NO WAY! NO HOW! I said I wanted to have our own first and enjoy them. We love our children dearly and enjoy them too! Almost 11 years later God has softened my heart, miracles do happen folks! About a month ago there was a serious of articles in the Indianapolis Star that ran about the need for Foster Parents and how helpless children were dying at the hands of parents, boyfriends, etc. This saddened me and inferiated me too! So, I went to the county office to find more information out and told Josh I was ready. He called and spoke to the Social Worker for our county and we were signed up for our first class. We went, learned about being a Foster Parent and the process to adoption. We also saw and heard some very raw feelings from the kids perspective. This past week we got a call about a sibling group that would thrive best if they were able to stay together and would we consider them. Josh and I talked and prayed about it. Called the Social Worker back and said YES! So, we are in the midist of becoming certified by the state of Indiana for Foster Parenting! This process is supposed to take 3-6 MONTHS but we are doing it in a matter of 2 WEEKS! Tomorrow DCS comes and does our home visit and we may have the kids as early as next week. The LORD has provided because I kept saying we don’t have beds for them, were not ready and yesterday a friend said she had a bunk bed and another friend said she had a dresser we could use. The LORD IS FAITHFUL when we are in HIS WILL!!!!! I am just crazy excited and can not wait for next week! I know many think we are CRAZY but if this were our kids I would want someone to do the same. And not ALL Foster Kids are BAD they just are put into a situation that is our of their control and need Love, Patientce and direction! Stay tuned and keep praying!

Presenting the Queen

Jill Campbell!
She is my cousin! Thus no match for her and my brother below! 🙂 Here is the 101 on Jill from Jill herself!
Fun, adventurous American girl living 35 minutes north of the Washington state border in Canada. I know this shouldn’t qualify me, but I am so close that I fly out of Seattle for most of my trips. And I grew up in Colorado and still consider it my home sweet home.
I am a nurse and I love my job. I came to Canada for nursing school and got attatched to the friends I have here, so I stayed. I do have a job that would allow me to go anywhere in the world. It is one of the things I love about it.

My family and friends know that I am generous and they are loved unconditionally. And I could go on and on about my nephews Lyndon and Sylis.

I love animals, especially dogs and I have a cat named Kona. Hawaii in 2008 was a highlight that I still love to this day.
Hobbies include camping, fishing, hiking, photography, roadtrips, and concerts. My favourite concert is a tie between U2 and Coldplay and Snow Patrol. I have safely traveled to distant places like India, Ethiopia, Japan, and oh yea Canada. It really isn’t all white winter in the area that I am living. It is more like Seattle, rainy and green.

I am looking for a man that can interact with me on different levels. I am well versed in many topics and can keep up with the best of them. I would love to make you laugh at some point too. 🙂

A few last minute facts:
I love international films and would love to one day be in Africa for missions, even if it is just for a short time.
I also don’t like to eat raw tomatoes. lol.
If your interested leave a comment and she shall see it! 🙂
