And then there was...

Well, kind of. We are at the top of the list for an infant girl referral! That's the really exciting news. Let me explain the "kind of" like this:

There are officially three families in front of us in line based on our DTE. None of them, however, are requesting girls. Two families are open to either gender (kind of like being surprised at birth) and one is requesting an infant boy. Previously, if you were open to either gender, you were almost automatically guarenteed to receive a boy referral because boys had traditionally (up to this point anyway) been more readily available. But we've had so many girls come through lately, it's starting to flip flip. I'm not sure they have ever had a family at the top of the list waiting for boy or either. So, if a girl happened to come up next, the referral would go to the 'either' family.

Either way, we're so very close, and my heart skips a beat everytime I see a long distance phone number on my cell phone. I've already alerted my co-workers that if the call comes, I'm outta here for the day.
