Two years ago today, the girls and I were working on cleaning out the basement storage. We were working hard, when my phone rang. It was a call from Virginia. I thought it was odd for our agency to call out of the blue. We had been waiting several months on those late night calls when referrals would come in, but our phone never rang on the those nights. So, I answered the phone, and it was Amy our coordinator. She said that they had just received a referral for a 6 year old girl whose special need was a maybe on our list. Did we want to look at her file? Yes, we were interested in looking at her file. After trying to get hubby on the phone, we looked at her file and happily sad yes to this little girl whose smile we fell in love with. What a journey it has been, but one we would do over again.
Funny that today we are still working on the basement, but it is now being turned into our new schoolroom/craft room/office (will post pics later).
