Here I (We) Go Again

So after a month break from foster care, prayer, talking it through with each other, friends, family, and our trusted Buckner workers Buck and I have decided to reopen our home for placements on Monday.  When our home developer left yesterday and we told her to put us back on the open home list I couldn't help but start singing the all so famous Whitesnake song...

No, I don't know where I'm going 
But, I sure know where I've been 
Hanging on the promises 
In songs of yesterday 
An' I've made up my mind, 
I ain't wasting no more time 
Here I go again 
Here I go again 

Of course I know we aren't in this alone.  And I am thankful for the sweet moments God allowed for restoring our passion for foster care and the conversation we were able to have recently with a mom who just got her little ones placed back with her.  Her story was one of redemption.  We look forward to what God has in store next for us (and a little nervous).  And as reminded by our Buckner team, this doesn't mean we can't still be sad, we can't still wonder how our past little ones are doing but it means we are trusting God in all situations. 

So as next Monday, January 7, here we go again!
