ETA: Just finished stalking January 2012 DDC, and now am really angry that there are mamas there talking about how they have already knitted hats for their bubs. I know it's irrational, but I can't help thinking: "how come they can be so confident of a sticky pregnancy?"
I do get what you are saying. Yet, some of those mamas also will not get to keep those babies. But.. yeah... I am so sorry that you have to feel that and that your reality has been so different than that of many moms who get to keep the first baby.
Royal Jelly is great stuff, though of course I am not claiming that that caused your wonderful news.
You do realize that you will be one of those " as soon as they agreed to adopt, she got pregnant." Just wait... The comments will come soon. ;) ;)
AFM... I talked with the social worker on Friday and she took all the initial information. Now we are waiting to full out more paper work. I was sure the papers would come no later than today, but no, not yet. I am hoping she did not forget to mail them... (Had she mailed them out yesterday, they should have been here today.) Now I am wondering when I can call her again, without being annoying, in case the papers don't come soon. I am sooo ready to get started. I have spent the past two days cleaning and organizing the closet. (I had dreaded doing that for years due to all the cloth dipes and dd's old stuff there.) I realized that I already have almost everything I will need for a baby. I could receive one tonight and lack nothing other than bottles and formula. BUT, if we really could receive the first baby in September, that would not be a long wait at all, really. We'll see. The more I think of all this, the more I am hoping that one of the babies would stay forever. BUT, I must always remember that it may never happen.
In any case, today was a special day for me: I was able to handle dd's old things (little diapers and clothes) without too much emotion. A big step for me and I am happy.
