Will this be the week?

It's hard to believe that this month is almost over and our referral will actually be on it's way soon.

I'm wondering if we'll get the call this coming week or next. Either way, our lives are about to change forever in ways I probably can't even imagine right now. We've been trying to become a family of three since 1996 and now 12 years later, that dream is about to come true. Everyone is saying that we should savor these final days of anticipation and take advantage of being a party of two before we travel to China. We definitely intend to do that!

It's going to be a heck of week waiting to hear when the stork will fly! I have a feeling my brain will be mush...should be an interesting week at the office. ;)

I'm hoping for Halloween...I just have a feeling. I'm so excited, I can't imagine how you and Joe are feeling. I need to get my scrapbook page ready to send to you! You're lives are going to change, for the better and in no time you'll be saying "I can't remember life w/o Lauren!" I told Colin & Veronica that they were going to get to see a picture of their newest cousin soon and they were very excited!! We're so excited for you!!
Love,
