A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Surprise (aka whoops)!

Yesterday was a day off from work.  After two doctor's appointments in the morning, I was home organizing paperwork and trying to get my taxes in order. 

Yes, I filed an extension, and time is almost up - nothing like true procrastination!

A little after 1pm, the doorbell rang.  I went to see who it was, thinking it must be a salesman. 

Whoops!  It was BB's case manager.  The first words out of my mouth:  I thought you were coming on the 30th.  Her reply, "It is the 30th."  Boy, did I look dumb.

The house was bordering on disaster.  Miss M had taken BB to therapy.  I had totally forgotten about the appointment!

Luckily, this is the same adoption case manager I had for both May and Buddy.  She has kids of her own and was totally not phased.  She wasn't even worried that she didn't see BB.  I am so thankful.

I signed the final paperwork for the adoption.  Everything is ready.  We are just waiting for the hearing at the end of October!
