So Here We Are

Waiting. I don't know what happens next. I guess we call her on the 10ths of the months and ask if we've had any action in the past month. I see there's another waiting family on the website. That makes 16 of us. Well, maybe it's still at 15 if our non-birth mom picked someone from our facilitator.

I have my licensing exam again tomorrow. I'm getting the ick. H1N1 is rampant in these parts. The locale big box is sold out of thermometers, ibuprofen and ancetmenophon (which i know I can't spell).

Lots of babies about to be born. Let's home some more are getting conceived. Drunken Halloween parties might help right?

Back in the pool

She didn't pick us. She went with a family that has 1 adopted child at home. I didn't expect to get picked but I'll still let down.

Actually, I'm not sure how I feel. I'm pretty sure I won't sleep all that well tonight though.


still waiting!

U G H ! ! !

Still Waiting

No decision yet from the emom. C said "I should know something tomorrow (which is today now). I will let you know as soon as I hear something."

I have a dentist appt at 1130. I'm taking my phone! Plus I will be the crazy person telling them "if I get a call i'm answering it! I might get a baby today!" So there!

A Call ~

No, not THE CALL but a call. C called yesterday to see if we wanted to be profiled to a mom that is a little bit outside the criterion we set. Mr H and I talked about it and we do. We should know something Monday. It's a boy due in January. It was all I could think about last night and the first thing I thought about when I woke up. Thus, I have made a conclusion.

I don't want to know when we are being profiled unless we've been picked. Too much for my obsessive self to handle.

The mom has many siblings. Maybe that will be good for us. Who knows. I just want it to be Tuesday already!

Update #1

I got a call back today while I was in the shower. She left a message. The answering machine causes my dog to HOWL something awful. I thought he'd fallen off the bed or something so I leapt out of the shower all dripping and shampoo-y. Anyway, C left a message. Our letter has had lots of activity. It's gone out to 10 potential birthmom's in 2 months! She didn't have any feedback for us though. I don't know if I should be excited or be sad/neurotic!

Two Months

It's been two months since we went active. The facilitator said we should check with her after 2 months (and really not before then) to see what feedback there was on our profile. So I have emailed her.

I haven't heard anything.


Me either.
