Today, 2 separate (as in living in totally different countries) friends shared their good news: they’re expecting. One family is on baby #2 and the other is on baby #3. I have another 4 friends who already have due dates.
Any kind of baby news makes me think of Little Sister. Anything pink or purple also makes me think of Little Sister. It doesn’t take much for my mind to go to her. She already has my heart.
We have not received our Log In Date yet. And that’s OK. We knew this would be our season of waiting. We still know without a doubt that this is the right decision for our family.
Some of you have sweetly suggested that we could get pregnant while we wait for Little Sister. Mathematically, it’s a good idea. However, we fall under China’s May 2007 adoption rules: if we get pregnant we would have to re-file our dossier when the 2nd baby is 1-year-old. That would have us starting the paper chase all over in about 2010.
So we press on in our season of waiting.
Was that pink Hello Kitty sweater on sale?
