I admit...i can almost admit it to myself....We have a match! (pretty much I think). I'm on the verge of panic attack half the day and most of the night.

Any way...our emom is near enough that we don't have to fly!! YAY!! I'm so very excited about that. I was not at all excited about taking a newborn on a giant germ tube.

Another bonus is that we can finalize before we leave the emom's state. Which leads us to the biggest bonus! We won't have to deal with our dipshit social worker once we get home!! Thank you Jesus. Unfortunately, I will be seeing her next week to update the homestudy. I don't know if I should take the entire day off since there's no way to tell when she might show up (despite making an appointment).

I'm still pretty much in disbelief. We haven't really told anyone IRL. My two best friends know because I was freaking out since Mr H is gone. The girls at work know because we work in an open office and i'm constantly on the phone with our lawyer, the lawyer we hired for her, and the facilitator. It's been crazy. I can only imagine it's going to get crazier. It's really hard for me to enjoy this and allow it to be real....no matter how it turns out.


  1. That is all awesome! Great news that you won't have to fly. Are you sure you can finalize that quickly? Is that the rule for your state or the state the baby will be born in? Glad you are getting excited!

  2. Is it a panic attack or simply an explosion of pent-up excitement, adrenaline, and anticipation? I can't imagine what you're going through but am keeping my fingers crossed for you and Mr. H that all goes smoothly.

  3. Ditto to what my husband (Chris from above) said!

  4. Wonderful news! How exciting after such a long wait.

  5. I thought the same thing about Chris' comment! Enjoy that emotion - make it your own.

    Congratulations. Magnificent news!


  6. That's so cool you can finalize before you leave the state!!!
