change of plans...

friends, there's been a change of plans. after some crazy DRAMA with ryan's job search, we're back to square one. he's now back to the grind of applying and trying to basically start over. so, with the recent change of plans (our plans that is...obviously God has something different in mind), we've also made a change to our foster/adopt plans. after some serious cry sessions prayer and meditation last week, we've decided to change when we're taking the foster/adopt classes. before we were planning on doing the fast track classes from may 16 - june 13, which met on saturdays, but since ryan will still be working at the beloved hh gregg, he will still have to work every saturday. so with that in mind, we've decided to go ahead and begin the classes TONIGHT!!!!!! our new classes will meet for 9 weeks instead of 4.5 weeks, and will be thursday nights from today, april 9 - june 11 (ahem - my birthday!). we will still get done around the same time and will have longer to absorb all the information, so i think it's probably a better plan in the long run (see i knew He knew what He was doing all along).

anyways, so now i'm extremely excited and nervous all at the same time. i can't believe we're already embarking on this journey! adoption has always been in the back of my mind but now it is more real than ever. i just hope our classes are easier to bear than they have been for some of our friends. apparently even time outs are an unacceptable form of discipline in the state of kentucky. no wonder there are so many poorly behaved children in public places these days. a good round of spankings and time out always did the trick for me as a kid!

well, wish us goes nothing!!
