The Community has officially invited me to join them! Not sure at what level: the Guardians are talking about sending me a copy of the Vow Ceremony so maybe they're inviting me directly into simple vows (acknowledging the 7 years formation in TSSF I've already had). I'll wait and see. I've already notified them that I want to wait until I have an official blessing from the Bishop to go ahead, but hopefully that will come fairly quickly - but even if it doesn't, I know I'm in the right place and am on the way with COS.
Hubby is really happy about it, and small daughter already knows Mummy has made "special promises to God". She likes the sound of them and keeps asking me what it means.
