I wanted to thank all of you who have supported Bakers Club. I like to think that we made a little bit of a difference. I am discontinuing the club, because I am following another service venture, and I hope all of you will check it out. I was asked to participate in creating a trial website ServiceProjects.net It is still a work in progress, but it is currently up and offers service opportunities for anyone interested in the Pocatello area. Please check it out and keep on servin'!!

Clint and I graduated from our PRIDE class this week! HOORAY!! Now all we need is a home study and we'll be licensed Foster Parents. Clint and I have been exploring all our adoption options. If we adopt through the state they want you to take the PRIDE classes and foster the child for 6 months before you adopt them, to make sure the child is a good fit for your family.
Clint and I started taking the class, mainly to adopt, but the classes really opened our eyes to what Foster Care is all about. We were so touched by the stories and the training that we have decided to do Foster Care, whether or not we'll be able to adopt the child after. We figure at some point we will Foster a child that we'll have the opportunity to adopt, but in the mean time we're taking it slow and excited to provide a home for a child/children in need.
As for the 2 children I mentioned in my previous post. The state is still trying to decide what would be best for the kids, and "exploring all their options." We'll keep you posted!

Clint and I have started a company called Webtec. We Design Websites, and so far it has been going really well. Our poor little website has been a bit neglected, because we've been busy with other site, but we finally have our site up and going. We can build websites for companies anywhere in the world, so if you know anybody looking for a designer, please send them our way :)

Clint and I have been working with Social Services for the past couple months trying to adopt. There has been a 3 year old girl that we have been particularly interested in. It has gone back and forth, over and over again, whether or not we can adopt her. I can't really get into details, but they want to place her with her siblings and to go to extended family members if possible, however, now they are considering us again.
She has a 5 year old brother, who we have met and he's adorable, and Social Services are now asking if we would be willing to adopt them both to keep them together. Since we've never been parents we are nervous about adopting two at once. On the other hand they could be good playmates for each other. I would love to have input from ya'll out there! Especially those of you with kids :) Is it easier with two?
