On Thursday, April 21, I was sitting at lunch with my coworkers as usual. I was scrolling through Facebook on my phone and halfheartedly listening to the various conversations.
I got a notification for a new email, so I slid it down out of habit.
As soon as I read the subject line, I gasped and dropped my phone.
I had my written referral and it was go time. I was in complete shock!
Adoption is hard. You work really hard to do paperwork and appointments as quickly as possible, then you w-a-i-t and w-a-i-t and w-a-i-t and then BAM! You go meet your son.
I AM MEETING MY SON NEXT WEEK.
Now is the whirlwind of preparations. Plane tickets. Hotel rooms. Packing lists. Toys, clothes. Sub plans.
And so, so much anticipation.
In just over a week, I get to introduce you to my boy. What pure joy.
With much love and excitement,
