In order for us to be allowed to adopt we have to complete certain requirements for Adams County. We had to take 20 hours of classes about foster care and adoption. Complete 5 hours of extra classes or read books and watch videos about foster care, adoption, or parenting and write a report about what we learned.
We get to count two more hours when we complete our home study, which includes multiple interviews separately and together. Today we finished our last class which was a 10 hour CPR and first aid class. Now we are both certified to give CPR to infants, children, and adults. (Ask me if I actually feel confident about those skills. Eek!)
Our kids have had to endure alot of time in daycare and with our babysitters. They had two eight hour days in the Adams County childcare center and one 4 hour day. Then they had today. Danya had a meltdown today after the CPR class because she felt like she hadn't seen us all day long. We had to leave at 7:30 am this morning to get to the class. At least it's finally over and we can spend more time with our kids again.
