Ok, so today I decided to have a duvet day. The weather was rainy and Hubby is in the UK and so the dogs and I were snuggled on the sofa watching movies and had just finished our third, when I got an email…
It was from a woman who had seen our plea on a website, is pregnant and has just broken up with her boyfriend, so is weighing up her options and wanted our Social Worker’s details, so she could chat to her.
So I speed dialled our SW and was very surprised to hear her voicemail message saying that she was out of the country until the 13th January (!!) She hadn’t mentioned that when I told her our holiday plans, but hey ho, I decided to ring her partner instead and then got no reply!!
When we first met Zoe, she said that as soon as we got even a sniff of the possibility of a baby, we should tell them immediately and here I was, trying my darndest to get hold of them to tell them of the first “lead” we have had (albeit a bit of a long shot) and neither of them were contactable!! Plus hubby was out of reception and so I couldn’t get hold of him… colour me slightly FRUSTRATED!!
A couple of hours later, I heard from Joan and she said to ask the girl to call her, but she was in the bush and so her reception is a bit dodgy. Anyway, I emailed her details to the woman and now I guess the waiting resumes… tinged with a bit of hope (only the tiniest bit, as we don’t want our hearts trampled over yet again).
Hold thumbs for us!
