Today is a much better day than yesterday. Let's face it... yesterday was crappy or should I say CRAPPY. Ok, done with that. There were less crappy moments that I would like to share with you. For instance, the moment that I recieved an "unknown" phone number on my cell thinking it was the agency calling me for some important reason regarding the re-unification. While, I'm correct at saying it was the agency, it was not related to our reunification matter.

Here's where I have to take a quick detour, we changed our profile this week with the agency. I loved LG, however D and I decided that we could give more to a child that was a little bit older and let's face it - Everyone wants a baby! Even me, I totally would love to have a baby. Anyway, we had a long discussion and changed our profile. We extended the age to 7 or 8.

So, the agency called to let us know there was a little girl that needs a home. We would not have been contacted if we had not just changed the profile three days before. I took that as a sign. She has a name that I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE (think of a Rolling stones song circa 1966 with the word Tuesday in it) and she is available immediately. There is a lot to her story but - the .26 termination hearing was scheduled for July and has been moved to October and bio-parents have not made it to the last two scheduled visits. She is 8, a year older than BG and we have a play date scheduled for this Sunday at 4:30. Wish us luck.

I know we are still healing from the reunification of lg/BG yet I cannot help being excited about meeting this little girl we will call "R". If it is not a good match, D and I are fine with things because we really have alot of tacos on our plate and would love to catch our breath.

See ya Sunday

Kara - you are amazing! If I had been through what you had been through yesterday I would be in bed, with the covers over my head curled up in the fetal position sobbing. And here you are - once again giving of yourself so selflessly - even just meeting R is an incredible thing.

Yippee! Thanks for the lovely birthday wishes. We totally all need to go to Vegas. It would be like BlogHer only just drinking no education and only us cool IF bloggers.
Oh, I can't WAIT to hear about you meeting R! I know you are still hurting from BG and LG so I know you will be careful with your heart, but I hope things work out.

I hadn't realized that foster-adopt could be like this. How difficult- not knowing if you can bond or if you have to hold back! Best of luck!

Mmmmm .... Tacos .... (in my best Si.mpson voice). Anyhoo ...

As I've said so many times before, girl ... you and Duane are incredibly strong! I wish you two the best of luck on Sunday.

And remember ... trust your gut and your heart with whatever decision you make. (My great piece of assvice today. :-P )

Keep us posted!!

Wow! That sounds so cool! I cannot wait to hear how things go on your play date!

God, what a lame comment... sorry. It's late, and I'm really tired, but I wanted to say something back so that you would know that I've read and that I'm thinking of y'all right now.
