In response to the comments from this post a few days ago: NO, friends, we haven't heard any baby news yet. Sorry if I led on that we had!!!!! :-)
I'm not sure if the following is because we have hit the 7 month mark or what, but....
In case you wonder just how gracefully I am handling waiting for THE CALL....here is a glimpse into my day:
*Think about this maybe possibly being THE DAY
*Check e-mail to see if any friends from my Yahoo adoption agency group received referral call
*Fall out my chair when someone has
*Rejoice for the new parents
*Frantically, but calmly, try to figure out when they got on "the list" and try to calculate where we might be
*Check agency's referral list to see if it has been updated
*Panic slightly when I realize my cell phone has been on vibrate
*Call Josh, but DO NOT (I repeat DO NOT) in any way act too excited or he would think that the referral was OURS
*Call my voicemail even though there is absolutely NO indication that I have missed a call....just to REALLY make sure I didn't miss a call
*Contemplate e-mailing our Social Worker, Jess, to confirm that she remembers us
*Hear the words "Did Jess call?" from Josh's mouth as he walks through the door. My response: "Oh, gee, Josh did I not call you? Oh, yeah, we have a baby." Haha.
*Go to bed
*Pray for our baby
*Pray for patience
(Steps not necessarily completed in this exact order nor are they all done every day....but you get my drift)
The irrational life of this mom-to-be.
Jealous are you?!
Irrational, yes. Wonderful, yes. Anxious, yes. Thrilled, yes.
Let's all pray boldly that this little device rings to the tune of Canon in D soon.....
Although in all honesty....I'm doing really, really great! I am so happy and so excited. I pray for patience every day and the Lord has graciously given it to me. I guess in a way I do all of those silly things to have some sort of "control" over a situation that is completely out of my hands.
How awesome is it that He has it all taken care of. Thank goodness!!!!!
As I said in this post, I do have a lot of thoughts on adoption spinning around in my head. I've sat down at the computer to try to write those thoughts out.....but the words just aren't there yet. Hopefully soon.
