Last training seminar???

...I hope. We have our last training class tomorrow for our foster license for special needs kids. We hadn't actually planned on finishing the foster license right now, but it was recommended by Andre's adoption team and means that he will continue to get his subsidies while we wait the six months to finalize the adoption. Tomorrow Andre will get to meet grandma and grandpa and other family members for the first time as well. So far he is doing really well adjusting to a new home and family and finally is in school after a long battle to have him placed in the same program as Ethan, and now it is only 2 weeks until school is out for summer holidays. We still hope to add more to our family and have a couple of prospects, but the waiting seems a lot easier now that we have Andre here and filling our spare time with getting to know him and taking care of him. This kids all love him and spoil him, even though he is older than all of them, they all are taking the roles of big brother and sister.
