Well friends, tomorrow is the big day :)
Tomorrow our expectant mother is getting induced!
I have taken "family leave" tomorrow because my maternity leave doesn't kick in until our baby is home.
I plan on doing a lot of cleaning to keep my mind off of the wait.
As I mentioned before, we won't get a call until after the baby has been delivered so I will have NO clue when anything before that will happen.  I will just be waiting for the call.

It seems like only yesterday that we decided on domestic adoption after our Ethiopia adoption plans fell through.
I remember the labor of love that was our adoption application and spending every second going over and over it to make sure it was perfect.
I will treasure the memories from both of our home studies (one and two)
finally deciding on the perfect child placing agency.
Adam and I loved creating our profile book.  We have a copy that we are keeping for Amelia and "E" asked to keep a copy as well.
I will NEVER forget the day we got "the call," or the emotions I felt for at least a week while I was still in shock from it all :)
And finally, I will remember how I felt the day we went to meet "E."  The excitement from before the meeting was nerve wrecking and the peace I felt after the meeting was complete.
I can NOT wait to share the rest of this sweet little story with you all. 
Tomorrow our lives will change forever.  
I can not wait.
I love you all.
