why the phone makes me flip out...

 because we're number...



That's right! THREE baby boys were referred to their forever families today! I can hardly believe that we're here! My heart is in my throat and I feel like I'm going to jump out of my skin! So please... if you know my in real life PLEASE text me before you call so I don't spaz out! We are just a phone call away from seeing Tucker's face and it could come at any time!

Pray for my sanity and for PEACE - I don't know how I'm going to make it through the weekend!
