As I took LJ to the second of his three weekly visits...
Me: Enter agency with little LJ.
LJ's Mom: Sitting in the waiting room already.
Five minutes until scheduled appointment time. What would you do? Make small talk right? This is how that went...eventually:
LJ's Mom: These kids are crazy. I don't know how I am going to do it with another one.
Me: Ya, it is really crazy with three.
LJ's Mom: I know, we are expecting a baby, and that little guy has so much energy, I don't know what I am going to do.
Me: Oh, how exciting. (Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie.) (And because I HAD to ask...) When are you due?
LJ's Mom: (Giggling.) September!
Me: How wonderful. (Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie.)
Almost three years ago when we went through our failed placement. That beautiful boy was due in September. We found out in September that he wasn't going to be joining our family. That is also the year this song came out. I loved it so much then, the words just helped me get through such a terrible time. Our baby was due on September 5th of this year. I am sure that September is going to be a little hard. Can I sleep through it again this year?
