The demon of insomnia got me good last night. I had to do battle with Valarian root AND Unisom! Ehhh. I'm so excited, my sense of destiny is heavy right now. It always is when I know we're going to be shown. It's not so much that I always think this is it...but I feel like we're on the cusp of something every time. Like "Ships Passing in the night" you know, they could be *this* close! Is it silly to want to say *Ahoy!* Which means "I'm HERE!!!" It probably is silly.

Praying for you! :) will be shown tomorrow and then they have as much time as they want to make a decision? Do you know how many other couples are being shown along with your profile?
Hoping for GOOD NEWS for you! :)

I'm not sure how many other couples we'll be "Up against" :D I think it's better that I don't!

They Usually give the birth parents 3-5 profiles to look at. And it kind of varies how long they have to make a decision. But *most* of the time they choose 2 or three to take home for the weekend. Sometimes, like with our last false start, we knew friday afternoon. So, I'm not sure how long it will be before we hear anything, but I know my Adoption Specialist will tell us as soon as she can!

Thank you so much for your prayers and your hopes in our direction. It's so exciting to share with people who know the routine. For quite awhile I wasn't involved with people who understood and they were like "Oh well, next time right?" And I was like, "Sure, that's exactly not how it feels!" on the inside and fake smile on the outside and nodding with tears in my eyes.

So, at least you all know the drill!

Hug Milo big time for me! Ask him to wish us luck! :D
