Thursday morning, I was sitting in a meeting, listening to introductions when all of the sudden I got a phone call from our case worker. She was calling to let us know that a birthmom had picked us and wanted to talk that night!
I was jumping up and down!
(literally...in a high school open area...where they were looking at me like I was crazy)
I couldn't wait to get off of the phone and call Kelly with all of the good news and details, including the fact that we would get to meet her via a phone call that night!
So I tried to focus by taking good notes throughout the day at my meeting, but it sure was hard to concentrate! So when I got home I was super anxious about the phone call. Waiting all of this time has been hard but waiting those few hours seemed even more intense! I was counting down until 6pm...hours...then minutes...
6pm came and went.
Okay, she's nervous so I'll give her more time.
6:30 came and went.
Still probably nervous...more time needed...
7pm came and went.....
Had she changed her mind? Why wasn't she calling?
So we texted our case worker to investigate with the birthmom's case worker.
We got a call at 7:30....
"Guess what guys.....she's in labor!"
She's not due for another almost 4 weeks?????!!!!!!
You're kidding right?
Nope, she's really in labor!
Book your plane flight, a hotel and get there ASAP!
That's all you get for now...stay tuned for PART 2! :)
