I got it in my head on Thursday that I wanted to take new pictures for our adoption profile. The pictures of our house that are in there have always bugged me.
So, I began cleaning and moving things around. I made my Mom come over after work to help me. We changed the living room all around and took some good pictures. I also took a bunch of random pictures around the house so I had choices when it came time to make the new pages.
I actually got so obsessive that I took some pictures of the living room, uploaded them on to the computer, stared at them to pick out what I didn't like, then went back to the living room to change the angle I was taking the picture, or to move something in the room, or change the lighting. I am finally happy with how the pages about our house look.
I even decided to change a couple other pages while I was at it. I spent hours working on our profile. I even had a mini meltdown about how badly I want these changes to make a difference.
I worked on it all night on Friday and then got up early Saturday morning to finish. Adam took the new pages to Kinkos to make copies and then brought them to the post office to send to our adoption agency.
Hopefully they will get it Monday morning and be able to take out the old pages and add the new ones before the expectant mother looks at them this week. I don't know what day she will be looking at all the profiles, but I know I am going to be jumping up everytime the phone rings this week.
After 18 months of waiting, could this be the week we get THE call?
