OMG! here we go.....

Today ended up being a whirlwind! I got call from the adoption agency at around 2pm and since I was in the classroom I didn't answer (boss was there). All I kept thinking was, " Please don't say our check bounced!" Well, our check cleared and there is a birthmom who is being very particular. She has looked at all the waiting families and doesn't like any of them. She keeps saying, " I will know when I see it.". So the agency is now letting her look at newbies. This means I have to whip up a profile book and have it in their hands, in Florida, by FRIDAY! I thought I was going to have months to make this thing! Instead I spent a few hours tonight writing the most important letter of our lives! I didn't receive much information, just that she meets our parameters and we meet hers. She is due Dec. 31st. Please pray for my ability to stay calm these next few days and to realize that this is a process. I pray that if this is our child, the mother will know when she sees our faces and reads our story. That is all I can hope for.

Hello! I'm a fellow-about-to-adopt lurker. :) We had the SAME thing happen. We made our book (that we thought we'd have 2 months to work on) in 2 1/2 days. It turned out great and we were matched. I was glad it happened that way...less time to stew over everything little thing. Good luck!!

You know I am thinking of you and praying hard. Just try to stay calm and know its out of your hands - what will be will be. But I won't lie - a new year's baby would kick butt!!!!!! Ok, I'll stop. Love you guys.
