I am in the BEST MOOD.
I don't know if I mentioned it before, but I applied for a job as a mail carrier with the USPS. It would be a great opportunity for our family, and I would make enough to support us so Lucas can focus on school.
I am still waiting to hear if I got into the Nursing program. If I did not I will reapply, and somehow try to do both.
Anyway, I applied a couple weeks ago and heard that they were going to do a background check.
Good sign right?
So today we got a letter in the mail that said my background check processed and I had a copy of it and everything looks great! No secrets here!
So fingers crossed that I get the job! I was just really excited to see that they took another step and paid to do a background check. I was happy to see they were still considering me and it said I should expect word in the next few days! AHH!
More good news,
I drove all of our paperwork down to Idaho Falls today. Our doctor had already mailed in my medical history so we were ready to move on! Immediately I paid the initial fee with LDSFS and they are getting the ball rolling! This means we are officially potential adoptive parents! We still have more work to do, of course, but it was an exciting step! Next we get our home study done. We are very excited to see progress so quickly with everything.
Even though life is still the same day-to-day right now, today felt like two giant steps in the right direction and that just feels WONDERFUL. :)
