On Saturday Josh and I sent off our application to Bethany. Today, only two short days after sending the application, we got a call! We have an adoption counselor! I'm super excited. He said that our application looked great and remembered meeting us at the informational meeting in September. We are going to try to meet with him next week for our intake meeting and to get the big application.
This is such a small step, a tiptoe at the base of a mountain path, but I can't help but be excited. It's a tiptoe step toward a baby. I wish each step would go as smoothly as first contact, though I don't expect it. Infertility can suck hope out of you and it's nice to see a glimmer of it in this adoption.
I'm on the path for a baby!
