That's what my doctor said to me as he walked out the door on Wednesday. He was halfway into the hall when he turned around. "Your world's about to turn upside down," he smirked before walking off to his next patient. A comprehensive health examination is required for our home study. Our doctor is an older gentleman, in his 60s, I suppose, and I think I was his first adoptive health check. He also informed me that I was also the first patient of the day under the age of 80! That made me feel slightly better about the comment the receptionist had made when she filed my forms. "You don't look old enough to be married!" A compliment, true, but an odd comment to respond to when one is filling out a form to become a parent.
And tomorrow, we meet our social worker at a coffee shop at 10am. Seems simple enough, but whew, it makes my heart skip a beat! I may or may not have already looked at their menu online (I don't drink coffee) to figure out what I might order, so I don't have to waste a minute staring blankly at the board when we arrive.
As for deciding what to wear, you can only imagine the process that has been for someone who over-thinks things as much as me! What is the proper mix of "we are ready to be parents" but "we are still young and fashionable" yet "we don't waste all our money on clothes?" Ha, I'll try to remember to let you know what that perfect outfit is on Monday. Until then...say a little prayer at 10am tomorrow to soothe our nerves!
