Miracles do happen.....

For those of you who didn't know....

I got a job!!!!!!

I started last Friday and I am loving it. I am so happy because this is the job I really wanted to get...and I did!!! Horray! There are a million new things for me to learn...but it is all coming together! I am now a Family Specialist (Licensing Worker) working with Foster parents. I work with the parents to get them licensed and certified to become Foster parents, do all of thier paperwork with them, do home visits, attend meetings, teach training classes and much, much, more! I am also a liaison and advocate for the Foster parents. I enjoy knowing that everyday will be a little different. Not quite sure what a "typical" day looks like for me yet since I am still learning/training, but I am excited to find out. Today I started my own case load of families and although it is a little overwhelming I am ready to hit the ground running. Wish me luck!

Luck? You want luck? You have a job.

Other people need luck (getting one). Either that or to try harder (wink)

I'm glad that you're a happy woman Emily-wu! [hug]
