One more detail….

She’s due in August, which means she’ll take her time picking, but also, if we are it, we will have a little time to prepare too!

Our agency says what yours does, Rachael–don’t do too much beforehand, and things will all fall into place. They recommend the 3 C’s– carseat, camera, clothes to be ready to take to the hospital. Then they say “Call your mother or 1 good friend ….when you get home with the baby, it will all be there. If it isn’t , call us and we have extras you can use!”

So there you have it! It’s all way too surreal. I’ll be sure to keep this “posted”….

Other random thought pertaining to this:

We have no girl name. We have a boy name, but no girl name!

If we need a girl name, I guess it’s a good problem to have!!

Someone Thinks We’ll Make Good Parents!!

OMG!! Talked to our case worker today–someone is seriously considering us for her unborn child!!!

Our caseworker wanted to give us a little background on her, in case she does pick us. She’s considering us and two other couples. Wow! Wow! Wow! We’ll know in a few weeks if we were picked. I can’t believe it is happening so fast. Now I know that nothing is for certain, and even if she did pick us it still might not go through. But this tells us that people are looking through our album and liking it!! (we are 2 kick-ass yearbook editors, afterall)

So overwhelmed right now–we have NOTHING for this child except a botle of detergent. Nothing to wash, no diapers, no car seat, nothing. I know it will all come together as it is supposed to–but this summer? Really? How Amazing!!! Anyone out there reading this, please pray for us!!

Explaining infertility and adoption to a five year old? Probably not.

In the petting zoo today:

Five year old friend: ” Do you have children?”

me: ” no”

five year old friend: ” But you’re married. Now you should have a baby.”

me: ” I would like to have a baby”

five year old friend ” Then you should have one”

me: “that would be fun”

five year old friend ” Is there one in there?”

me: “No, there’s no baby in there”

five year old friend ” Oh. Can I pet the ponies?”

Ah. If only nosy grownups were as easily satisfied with such basic answers!!!
