But this morning it felt like more than just a process. And all of this stuff I've been doing is really just the busy-work. The important part is the little soul getting ready to join our family.
This little soul:
You see, I called the scheduling desk at Maimie's ear doctor this morning. I asked them for an appointment for my daughter. I spelled her name and gave her birthdate. I explained that she has conduction deafness in both ears. I gave our insurance information.
And they gave her an appointment, December 3. And I hesitated, not knowing if we'll be home by then. So we changed it to December 16 instead. The truth is that I don't know if we'll be home for that date either.
Still, there's a little note on my calendar that marks Saidie's ear appointment. Makes it seem like it's really going to happen.
After all, it is on my calendar.
