it's possible

That's a song from Seussical. One of my favorite students of all time (yes, there are many...)is singing that song (...It's possible. Anything's possible...) in the play. She's playing Jojo, the thinker who saves Who in Horton Hears a Who. (Didn't see the movie. Have no inclination to do so. Mr. Carey, stop ruining my Seuss!) The song is actually based on the book McElligot's Pool where even the most unlikely things are possible.

It seems like there could be a possibility of a possibility of a little elephant coming home. I got a call from Ann Marie (How great is that? A call that could end up being the call and it came from my friend.) telling me that new agency was trying to get a hold of me. Through the static we managed to figure things out.

Why did they want to talk to me? There is a little girl who might be available...but it's an unusual situation (what isn't in Russian adoption?) that I won't elaborate on here. And, please don't ask. I'll tell you what I can, when I can.

Suffice to say, it's in another region so I'd have to redo that paperwork. (But, I'm happy it's in this region instead of the anticipated one.)
She's older than my age range, so I need a hs update.
Because I've moved I likely need to fly in a sw again for that update.
I need a Russian hs, too. No clue about cost or timeline there.

I am calm, quiet and a little detached. Ann Marie is bouncing around like a cheerleader whose name has just been announced as a finalist for starring role in Bring It On, Again. (She's a great cheerleader.)

I told you I'd tell you. And this isn't even news, really...

Super, super, super excited for you. I know you are guarding your heart, and that's wise, but we can jump up and down a little, too, right?

Praying for you (and the little elephant)!

I'm going to remain calm, but am crossing my fingers and still praying for you. Oh, and there's a big grin on my face!

Pachyderm prayers coming your way that whatever is meant to be, comes to be.

I know how things go in adoption, so my hope for you is that YOUR child comes home soon...whomever that child may be.

Good to see you post. Yours is one of the blogs I really look forward to reading.

I have to laugh at the image of Annmarie in Bring It On, Again! You know, every time I randomly notice Bring It On on HBO I get sucked in and end up watching it...again. My husband teases me endlessly every time too, but I bet I've seen that movie 1/2 a dozen times! I want to cheerlead too! YEAH! I'm so excited about your possible elephant nibble and I can't wait for you to be able to share more info! Meanwhile, I'm over here cheerleading too. YEAH! (Is that enough exclamation points in one comment for you?)
