Update on the girls
After 2 years of actively waiting for Bahay ng Pag-ibig (House of Love) to become a reality, the wait is nearly over. Back in July of this year (2020) I received my foster care license, the next step to taking in teenage girls. The very long quarantine (ongoing since March) here in the Philippines has slowed down and complicated the process quite a lot. That hasn't stopped me from praying, hoping, and preparing for their arrival. I'm waiting for my four teen girls to arrive any day now. Their room is painted a lovely purple with bright white trim on the windows, book case, and cabinet/closet. Everything is set up and awaiting their arrival. My heart is constantly beating with excitement, anticipation, and nervousness. My thoughts are always running, "Will I be a good mom?" "How will we get along?" "What trauma will they be carrying with them?" "Will they all come at once?" "Will they choose to call me mom?" "Can I love them the way they need to be loved?" So many questions, but one answer is always my go to reminder; "God knows and has made a way."
Any day now I will be a first time mom to teenage girls. Pray for me. Pray for them. Pray for us.
