I am ready! Here you see I have my video camera ready! Hopefully I won't be shaking so bad that I won't be able to use it. I kinda have to start it without being able to see the back. I have practiced once, but I think I may have to do more! To the right you see the all important box of Kleenex! I have two pens and one pencil. Do you think that is enough? If not to the left in the can are various writing implements. I have my referral questions and scratch paper. Oh, of course one of my famous count down sheets to the left. Do you think I am ready? My fear is that the den is ready, but what if I am downstairs, or stepped outside to the trash or mailbox, or in my car! Since no one knows exactly when we will get the call the chances of being here in this set up are slim. Unless I sit here all day beginning tomorrow all the way until next Monday!!!! Come on stork, fly fast!

I was like that on referral day also. I printed up a sheet that had the date and the words "The Call!" I had the cordless phone set up so that it would record the caller ID window when our agency's phone number came up on the window! It was so funny and crazy. But years from now when our daughter watches that, she will know how excited we were and know we were SO excited to finally know who she was!
Good luck and best wishes!

Okay... you are making me cry... we were paperchasing for our second when we found out we were preg. We now have an 8 month old son. Our friends are LID 6/22/05 which most likely would have been our LID too if we had continued paperchasing... so I'm living vicariously through all of you guys and am so excited. With DD #1 we were totally surprised with the call with our referral It was in 2003 - SARS caused delays and we were happily surprised with our referral... I'm so excited for you!!!!

Hi, Poma Family. Your sister is a counselor at our school. She has shown us your web site. Congrats on the new baby. We can't wait for her to show us a picture of her.

Thank you all so much! Someone suggested going and doing something for myself today. I think I will get a much needed pedicure! Vicki

I am June 23rd LID and a June Jitterbug. As well, Bill did my website for Maliah as well
Anyways, I am living through you over the next few days girl! I cannot tell you how excited I am to see Emma's face on your websites! Praise God for his blessings! I cannot wait to be where you are ... I only hope I am as prepared! My kids (ages 6 and 4) might think Mom has lost her mind .... although I think they'll be dancing and crying as much as I am as Maliah is the constant talk of our home! O.K., crying just thinking about your upcoming referral and what is to come! Many prayers to your beautiful family!
In Christ,
Cristie Martine

This is hilarious! We got "the call" yesterday (4/27) and I was IN THE SHOWER! I did however have my cordless phone in there and paper and pen just in case, but unlike you, no video camera! LOL! It was not great timing, but who cares? My baby is coming home soon!

Congratulations! YOur little one is adoreable!
