Call Us!

It's been 2 weeks and I'm getting really sick of talking to telemarketers. But "no call goes unanswered," that's our motto. Even if it reads out "1-800-Ask4Monee" on the caller id, we answer. (Apparently in my mind, telemarketers can't spell...or count to 7.) Which means I've had the distinct pleasure of talking to some very interesting people. Last night, after I told the guy for the third time that I was not going to give him any money, he hung up on me. The nerve! How dare he hang up on ME! Especially when I was about to hang up on him. I hate it when my ideas are stolen.

RIIIIIIINNNNNG darn it.

Okay, I'm getting a little anxious. I know it's only been 2 weeks. And for the first 13 days, I was calm. Suddenly last night, the little switch in my brain flipped and I am on high alert. I think I'm even starting to imagine the phone ringing.

Next Tuesday we're going to attend the waiting families gathering through our agency. That way we can commiserate together...or whatever one does at these gatherings. I can only imagine the group reaction to a cell phone ringing in that meeting! I also offered to host one of these gatherings while secretly hoping that by the time they called on us to host we would no longer be a waiting family.

I'm plenty busy and there is much left to do on the house so it's not as though I sit around staring longingly at the phone. Calling the land line from my cell and my cell from the land line just to make sure they're working. Willing them to ring darn it, RING! Nope, none of that for me. I'm busy, busy, busy. I know God's timing is perfect so I will try to be patient. As you know, that is not my strong point so it will require great effort though. Ugh.

In the meanwhile, I am controlling...ahem, I mean influencing...what I can. Through a process of stalking that stops just short of a restraining order, I have managed to get our dear birthparent letter published on the website! Okay, it was just one little e-mail innocently inquiring as to whether they got all the requisite information for the posting. They confirmed that they got it. And the next day, voila! It's published. With that kind of marketing, I'm sure the phone will ring soon.

I said, I'M SURE THE PHONE WILL RING SOON.

COME ON, RING ALREADY!

Hi Lori,

I am anxious and excited for the lucky little child who will get to have you for parents. I think your instincts are telling you something wonderful is going to happen soon. Our instincts are always 100% right.

What any child needs most is to be loved. The love you show for Lillian makes it obvious that you are the best choice!

Best wishes that your dream will begin very soon.

1-800-ask4monee....seriously???? I am so disturbed...
we finally just had our caller ID turned on at the house (long story!) and I think we need to buy a few more phones with that feature. I especially like yours that calls out the person's name - now THAT'S handy!
And, I'm certain that the phone will ring soon (with the right person on the other end too!)

I feel the call you wait for is coming...

I'll be praying and hoping for your phone to ring SOOOOOOOOON - and this time to be the call you are waiting for, not some dude asking for money! Can't believe that the phone number was actually 1-800-ask4monee...that's actually pretty funny but I guess it's not too funny when you're waiting for an important call and you have guys like that calling you. :)

Timing is everything. I can hear the phone ringing in the background now!
Love and excitement on it's way!

I have to admit that I have the same anxious anticipation...hoping every time our phone rings it's you telling me that YOU GOT THE CALL! :-) It will happen very soon - I can feel it too!
