drumroll.....WE ARE #2!!!

These are the fortune cookies we received last night after finding out we're #2. Crazy right? (Kai's is the first one.) Check out the crappy ones below that we got last month. I never take pix of fortunes, but these were just over the top for their a) timing and b) "what?!?" factor.

So, there was movement!!!! YES! Congratulations to the Schmidts on their referral for a little boy. I've already warned that I'll be stalking them throughout the day until they get 'the call', as they now sit in the #1 spot. Don't you love this community?

I'm still a bit scattered since getting the news last night. I can only imagine where my head will be when our referral comes. This whole experience has been so powerful and eye-opening, yet we haven't even reached the best part yet!!!
Since reaching the WaitList stage, it seemed that not until we hit the top 10 would things begin to sink in. And they did.
Then it was...'We'll start getting all ducks in their necessary rows when we reach #5'. With a rational plan and sound mind, that also panned out.
Well, as of last night nothing makes sense anymore. AND I LOVE IT!

Are these the worst fortunes EVER? Ironically, they were right before the lull. They were so bad and made us both laugh uncontrollably that I had to take a picture. (sorry about the shoddy exposure - from my Blackberry)

Kai's: "The most important relationship in your life is with yourself"

Mine: "You love Chinese food"

Lastly, a HUGE thank you to everyone who posted and played along in the ballad-bonanza! That was a much needed distraction from the lull that had been staring us down over the past weeks. I laughed so hard at each post/comment - thanks for sharing!
btw...if you posted, email me your address at tamara at I'm working on digging up enough baby tees for each of you.

Yay for the Schmidt's referral and this family's court date...keep it coming!
