Little Did I know.....

....that two years ago today would be my last day as just a wife, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin and friend....it would be the last time that I ,came first for me..... May 5, 2009, Rob and I had an interview about this profile that was about a one year old named Adrien. He had had a rocky start in life and was thriving in this foster environment. Out interview was 90 minutes, 30 minutes longer than expected and went very well.....not only do I remember that events of the few days, I remember every Adrien related moment starting two day before the interview when I had my entire family up at the house for a BBQ....we were joking around and talking and it was the first time my dad had heard of the upcoming interview and possibility of becoming a grandparent again, it was when I told my sister in law that she and my brother would be the child's God parents.....it was a great day....then Tuesday and the dreaded interview came.....and went....very well....then can May 6.....my dad's birthday....We all went to the Mandarin for dinner....All I could think about was the interview and how I was so sure I would be hearing the next day about how the interview went, even though the social workers said a decision would be made early the following week.......and here we are....two years later, celebrating my dad's 61st birthday.....with a child and getting ready for our second.....little did I know....
