ON THE BOARD

At work there is a communication board. I have looked at this board for years now... Nothing has changed just different names but never my name..... On the upper right hand corner of this grease board there are names with months... Some are written in black (unknown) red (girl) and blue (boy). Since I started my adoption process back in July 2005 I have been asked to place my name on that board in RED.... I hesitated to do this until today.... With a LID of March 7..... Hmmmmmmmmm, well.... Ummmmmmm I put February as the expecting date ..... I am starting to feel a little uncomfortable about this.... On one hand I could be jinxing all of us Feb/March LIDers. You know that feeling where you say something and then have to quickly "knock on wood"!!!!??? But then I could be just surprising myself and everyone with thinking I will hear about Tate in February but be pleasantly surprised in November..... I must make a decision to quickly erase this or just leave my name there on the baby board for all to see.....

AARON (WIFE)..... AUGUST
HEIDI........ SEPTEMBER
STACEY..... DECEMBER
LISA..... FEBRUARY
My heart is beating a mile a minute...... Just the sight of my name on this baby board bring tears to my eyes..... A simple name in RED can mean so much!!!!!
SIDENOTE:
the other day my mom was talking about Tate and how much fun it will be to finally see her and get to know her..... With all other births we kind of know what the new member of the family will look like.... Who's eyes? Nose? Mouth? Amount of hair??? All family characteristics in some shape or form..... But with Tate it will be the unknown.... My Mom likened it to opening a present and not knowing the treasure that is found within.... I whole heartly agree with her!!!!

I am really thinking sometime around feb. also.
I just keep telling people "around the first quarter of 2007"
sigh.... just don't know what else to say.
What a GREAT way for your mom to think of things. Mom's are the best!

Your starting to feel the glow of waiting for your baby. Thats wondrful enjoy every minute. I took an idea from my MSN group. Make a daily journal so you know what and where you were when Tate was born and abandoned. I think it will mean a lot!

I have been telling people that it will be next summer sometime. I really believe in my heart it will be Feb or March next year. If it isn't, I'll know who jinxed us! :)
