I gathered all 3 kids from school and went on my way to the first baseball practice drop off. It was on our way there, at 3:08, I saw the area code come up on my phone that I had been waiting for all day. However, as I saw it, I was positive that this call was only to tell me that packages didn't arrive and the staff were leaving for the day.
As I heard our agency coordinator say "We have John on the line too." I thought just for a second maybe this is it, but didn't know if I should believe it. Then the words came, "We have your daughter's referral information".
I pulled over at the baseball field, grabbed the extra copy of the call sheet I had made for Wednesday's call and we started getting the information. Seriously, this really was the day!
She is adorable. She is young. She is too far away and I would love to hold her tonight!
And, here she is . . .
