One of my favorite day's of the year was yesterday, October 30th.
This is what happens at our house, on that day.. I make homemade chicken noodle soup, and homemade rolls (which is saying alot for me!) When we sit down to eat it, this is the story that is told.
8 years ago tonight, I was shopping at a store with daddy, I bought a cute little baby blanket that was red and blue, daddy asked "what are you going to do if it is a girl?" "It is not, it is a boy!" walking down a few more isle's I got a really weird feeling. "Malen we have to go home, RIGHT NOW!" So we paid for our blanket and whatever else we had put in our shopping cart and headed home. Nothing new at home, so I just started to make dinner, I was making rolls and yummy homemade chicken noodle soup, when there was a knock on the door.
It was our social worker, Lynn. He walks in the house all smiles and said, "guess what I have in my hand?" He was holding an envelope. "I have your baby in my hand!" "what? We are confused!!" Lynn hands us the envelope and said you have a baby coming in 2 weeks, a birth mother picked you!! we opened the envelope to a printed out piece of paper. It said basically nothing, it read due date: November 15th. Sex: girl Birth mother: Wanita (sorry Juanita, but they spelled it wrong!!) Which is why I spelled it wrong at first!! face to face: Nov. 1st in Provo
Lynn peeked his head into the blue nursery we had been getting all ready, because I knew this was coming, yeah yeah, laugh all you want, but I could feel it, and I knew. "you may want to repaint!" Lynn laughed and Malen said, "Wendy, you said you knew it was going to be a boy!"
I don't think we even ate our chicken noodle soup that night, we were too excited and nervous! But we have had it for the last 8 years to celebrate Chicken noodle soup day!!
I love you so much Sky, you are our little miracle and blessing!! I love you so much Juanita for giving us the opportunity to be Sky's mom and dad and trusting us!!
