One More Sleep!

UPDATE : I just got the day off tomorrow :)

So are you guys getting tired of me rambling yet? I am so hoping that tonight will be my final night as a non mommy! My stomach has been in knots all day today. I have managed to keep busy with my to do list. My brother came over and helped me with a lot including hanging more shelves in Abby's closet and fixing her toy box lid. Thanks Pete :) I am dreading work tomorrow. My Mom thinks I should call in. Her rational is that, "Nobody else has to work the day they have their baby so why should you?" I won't be calling in though I can't blame her she just really wants to be with me when I first see Abby's face. I am bringing my "The Call List" (Thanks Stephie) and my camera to work. I will get someone to video me taking the call. That is if I get the call. I still don't know for sure if I am in. Plus what if my agency gets the package then makes us wait til Tuesday for the info?

Anyhoo I have been thinking a lot about this big life changing event. I can't wait to find out who Miss Abby is. Most of all I want to know how old she is. I think China considers any baby up to 18 months old an infant. I will be fine with any age in that bracket I just want to know.I truly believe and trust that God has picked out the right and perfect child for me.

Finally I also really want to Thank You All for all of the support you have given me during this wait. Especially you all in Bloggy Town. I may not have met you in person but I know you and that has been such a special part of this process. This bond that we all have is like no other! I can't wait to watch the rest of your dreams come true :)
