Umm..."The Email"??

Doesn't have quite the same ring (pun definitely intended) as "The Call", does it? Because of the holiday, my agency has asked families expecting referrals tomorrow if they'd prefer a call or an email. If they need to call, the actual Fed-Ex packages won't be mailed in time for delivery to all families before the long weekend. If they send emails with all the same information and the scanned photos, they can get the packages in the mail tomorrow for delivery on Friday.

Since I live in the same city as my agency headquarters, I can pick my information up and not have to wait on the Fed-Ex delivery, so I'm deferring to what the rest of the group prefers.

But I have to say I've daydreamed about "The Call" for a year now and the mental shift to "The Email" is going to be a hard one.

And now I feel really silly about the cell phone charging. (Right. Like I didn't before.)

I linked to your site from RQ's and just wanted to say how excited I am for you. We are finishing up our paperchase at the moment. Just waiting for the I-171H to come in and then we are done. I will be following along with you and the others on RQ's site who will be receiving referrals this week. It is such a pleasure to see all your joy! Thank you for sharing it! Wishing you the very best as you receive word about your daughter!

Great post -- too funny -- who would have thought this would happen?

Does your agency have a big group or something?

I don't need the whole package -- just give me the stats and a photo!

I am on the edge of my seat waiting to hear your news!

Thanks for the good wishes! I wish I could just go to sleep now and wake up tomorrow right before the email shows up! As it is, I have no idea how I'm going to sleep tonight at all. :)

My agency is expecting just under 40 referrals, so I can see where they'll need to save that phone calling time if they're going to get everyone's Fed-Ex to them before the holiday. Good luck to all of you!
