Last Night, I Didn't Get to Sleep at All


Well, we did it. We finally have ALL of our adoption paperwork in. {{whew!!}}

We are now waiting for our background checks (I think I covered up most of my past pretty well!) and as soon as those come back, our home study will be scheduled. From there... we wait...and wait... and wait to be chosen. But, if things go as quickly for us as they did for 2 other couples in our ward, we will have a baby within a year.

AAAACK!!!!! I am kind of freaking out. So much so, that I have not been sleeping well. At. All. I am exhausted during the day, and then when I should be tired at night, I can't sleep!

I have been trying to have kids for almost 18 years of my life. What am I going to do once I have one? I feel like Capt. Ahab going after my whale. This race will be won, this mountain will be conquered, this fight will be over soon. I have been at it so long I can't see past this.

What happens next?

It is difficult with all the waiting but Capt. Ahab and his Whale ?...I never finished the book but we all know how it ended...you will survive and sleep too...you might need to talk to someone about the what you're feeling, which I think is completely normal LOL !

You are off to a great start, you will be all used to the sleepness nights & anxious days by the time you get one!! JK
It will be awesome, once it all settles down you will find that you have a hard time remember life before the baby.
It will be great!

WOO HOO!!! Good for you, not about the lack of sleep though. OH, we could chat all night since I'm losing sleep over spiders. :)
