This morning we received an e-mail from our adoption agency about an expectant mother who is due in April. It was a mass e-mail sent out to everyone, so it was a little different than the times the agency has called us specifically about a situation.
It took a couple hours of e-mails back and forth between Adam and I before I convinced him to let me call for more information. There were a few risks involved that made Adam nervous. Sometimes I think seeing them all listed together in one e-mail can be more overwhelming to him.
I called for more information about the new case, but first they said they had an update about the Indiana case we were being profiled for. I think it's safe to say we are never going to hear an answer about that one. The expectant mother seems to have disappeared. It was obviously a big disappointment...
BUT, I had a great conversation with our family advocate about the new case. After talking about it for a long time, I let her know we want to be profiled.
The more and more I think about this situation, the more I think it's a really good fit for us.
I have been happy about it all afternoon.
The expectant mother will be looking at our profile next week.
Until then I will be here with my fingers and toes crossed hoping, hoping, hoping she picks us!
