Almost There...

Tonight I printed out "The Call" sheet. You know... the form to write all the info on... her birth date, name, orphanage, province, etc and all the questions I won't remember to ask. Cuz you know my brain will turn to mush as soon as the phone rings.

I charged the Flip, set it up, positioned it on the Gorilla-pod and tested it out just in case I'm home alone when The Call comes. My intention is to actually remember to hit the record button. We'll see.

I loaded brand new batteries in the point and shoot camera in case The Call comes while I'm at work. I'll have my partner snap some photos. And again...hopefully one of us will remember to turn on the video camera, too.

I have it all planned out. I just hope I can think straight to pull it off when it really happens. LOL! I wish I knew for sure WHEN to expect The Call. Will they speed through translations and pick up the phone Tuesday afternoon? Or will I have to wait until Wednesday? I'll be a basket case by Thursday if it hasn't come yet.

The butterflies are fluttering. My heart is beating twice what's normal, I think. My mind won't settle down. How am I ever gonna get any work done this week?

Oh and after 5 years of pouring over all the blogs with baby pictures on Rumor Queen, I can now add mine to the list!! Well, almost. I just need the baby pic first. Stay tuned. It's coming soon. But in the meantime, go check out the other cute Babies.

I hope your plans work out better than mine! Thought I'd get my call on Monday but received it Friday afternoon. Nothing was ready. I can barely read my handwriting from that day!

I'm a fellow RQ'er and just wanted to wish you the very best! (My mom's nickname for me is Special K so your blog caught my eye :)

After what you've been through with your health, single motherhood will be no sweat!

Just wanted to say I'm so very happy for you with your referral. We were LID 01/23/06 for our first daughter from China and traveled in September 2008 to get her. We went to China again in July 2010 for her sister.

Best wishes as you get your referral and start the wonderful journey to China!

Mia's nursery is to die for! :)
