I couldn't believe it.
When I called Tom, he excused himself from his business meeting. He listened to everything I had to say about the adoption opportunity, the birth mother, the attorney.
"I think we should go for it. Call Shelley back now and immediately fax her the application form. Hurry up!"
I was excited. We could have a new baby in less than 3 weeks!
PLUS...there was hope for my husband and his sympathetic nervous system.
