The Words I thought I would never type

I was having a truly awful day. PMS'ing, Stressed out, in pain(My foot. So much for those shots)
Scrapbook class was a dissapointment(I didn't expect to win the contest, but my page didn't even get one vote. Ouch) When I got home I found the box for the birthday present that I ordered for my husband on my front porch ripped open, with the contents gone. Someone stole my husband's birthday present, and left the empty box where I could find it! What is wrong with this world? I feel so violated. I live in a very safe neighborhood. I am just heartbroken over this. I hope the company will issue a replacement, because it cost me fifty dollars. It was the only present he was going to receive, and I simply don't have the money to purchase another one before Tuesday, which is his birthday. I am crying as I type this. But even though I was in pain, and crying over the present, I decided at the last minute to walk all the way to my mailbox and pick up the mail. And do you know what I found? A letter from our adoption agency telling us we are DTC. Wait, I have to type that again. WE ARE DTC!!!!
Those are words that I was honestly beginning to think I would never type. And now the tears are tears of relief. I have to say it again, just so it will sink in. We are DTC! And now I am going to bed. Tomorrow is going to be a good day.

I deleted the previous post due to some severe typos! I am very sleep-deprived (happily though) due to our new daughter! Here is the corrected message!

Michelle;
I am SO, SO happy for you! It is exciting to know your dossier is on the way to China! Hopefully you will get your LID soon and start the "great wait"!!

It is all so worth it though, as I know you are well aware with your adorable niece!

Hope your foot feels better soon. Theres is very little that is worse than the foot pain! Agghh!

Somehow, Someone always knows when you are in need of that pick-me-up in your, otherwise, awful day. Being DTC puts all that other stuff in perspective.

Sorry about the lousy news to be sure BUT many congrats on the great news!

That is the BEST news. Wow has it been a journey for you. I am so happy, and can't wait to see you progress to referral and seeing Sophie. Congrats!

Kristin said...

Long time reader delurking to say: Congratulations to both of you! I remember what it was like to look towards that elusive acronym! You are getting closer to Sophie and while the wait, well, I won’t lie, sucks, every time I see a new family meet for the first time, I feel like it’s worth all the anxiety and despair. We were DTC on 01/09/2006, but have no idea when we were LID and THAT kills me. But that is the way our agency works, and I’ve heard that they are great (so far efficient to the max). Will you be getting a LID? Oh sorry about the rambling, but we have followed your journey for quite a while and we are SO HAPPY for you! YEAH, here comes Sophie!
