It's been a long week. When the agency notified us that things were going well, they also asked us to put together a profile book. (Until now, our profile has only been online. That's how it's done with our agency.) I'm not sure why they are asking us to do a book now - as opposed to earlier in this process - unless there is a specific reason for needing it at this point. Either way, it's what most of my energy has gone toward this week.
That and avoiding blogs and Twitter. As we close in on four years since the day we began trying to have a baby, reading about everyone's second attempt at having kids is adding to my funk. I'm not going to get into it, because I don't want to sound like a Bitter Betty. Instead, let me write about something positive:
My good friend JC over at Steps to Baby is going to be a mom this weekend! Their baby boy was born yesterday, and they are flying out tomorrow to meet him. If all goes according to plan, they will be parents by Monday. Please stop by her blog and send her some good thoughts. She and her husband are amazing people, and I couldn't be happier that their wait is finally coming to an end.
I hope to be back with my A game next week. I need to be. We have our first support group meeting of the year for RESOLVE, I'm running an event at work, and I have a few big assignments coming up with school. So, if you find my focus, energy, and positive attitude, do you mind returning them? I'll even pay the postage.
