I literally crossed the street to come into the office today and felt like I was floating on air. We're still in the clouds somewhere, in disbelief that we have a little boy who is waiting for us, half a world away. Every once in a while, I'd say pretty much every other minute, I've been getting these waves of emotion that just take over my entire being. It's almost impossible to describe.
And just when I thought I might be coming back down to earth, our blog friends, Rebecca and Ben, got their referral yesterday afternoon and all of those amazingly cool and surreal and exciting and wild and indescribable feelings came rushing back full force! We're so happy for them. We went on the wait list on the exact same day and got our referrals only a day apart. That doesn't always happen, and I'm so excited and happy that it did so we can all celebrate our news at the same time, and hopefully travel together one day soon too!
And I want to CONGRATULATE also Julie (who also just claimed my son for her daughter, Marlie, so you have to go read this hilarious post!) and Heather (who left an amazingly sweet post on her blog too!) for guessing RIGHT ON THE MONEY! I love that two of my greatest friends who have been with me through every step of this crazy process BOTH got it exactly right. There is something really crazy about that for me, and I'm still trying to process it. Julie and Heather will each be getting a prize, but I haven't quite figured out what that is yet. I'll keep you posted!
