Four years ...

July 8th 2005 around 11:00 I turned in my completed dossier (in person) at the
CHSFS office in St. Paul.

July 8th 2005: 11:15 swung by my agency to pick up coworkers Risa and Mel for a celebrate my "official waiting" lunch.

July 8th 2005: 11:45, waiting for my lunch receive a phone call. "This is Karne from Children's Home, is this a good time to talk?" ... me stumbling ... me thinking "ugggh I thought I was DONE with the paperwork" her saying "girl" "six weeks" "blah blah blah blah" Me: not hungry at all any more

July 13th 2005: Took my "paper baby" to the pediatrician. She looked over everything and said "she's perfect" Pediatrician (who I adore) was not at all concerned with the congenital amputation of her right foot. I stopped at some store on the way to work and bought a Faux Burberry Jumper for my new baby girl.

Doesn't matter how many times you write about it, I still love this story. Probably one of my favorite referral stories ever!

You and your daughter are gems. Happy 4's! Lucy is one beautiful and vivacious little girl - and that's going to bloom into some kinda somethin' as she grows. In this case, like mama like daughter.

Aww, you gave me goosebumps. :-)

Wow. It's hard to even imagine a referral without "the wait!" That must have been completely surreal.

I can't even believe that it has been 4 years already.
