So this is what happened ............... Part One.

This entire day is a little blurry, but I will try to remember as much as I can.

It's around 9:20 or 9:30 in the morning. I am trying to motivate myself to get some work done. The phone rings. I look at the caller ID. It's my agency's name. I think "should I take a picture of the phone?". Then I think "don't be silly. It cannot possibly be the referral". I answer and try to be perky and sound unsuspecting. I hear "This is S. We have good news. We have your referral".
I immediatly go completly numb and start sobbing. I think I said "Oh okay. OMG. Okay.". Then I scream at the top of my lungs "I'm going to be a mom". Someone appears at my desk and says "are you okay". I sob. They say "is this the call?". I sob. I hear hysterical shrieking from different corners of the office. Magically about 7 of my co-workers appear at my desk, saying "Oh my God, oh my God". The poor lady at the agency is still on the phone. I can't stop crying. Between tears I ask her when we can come and she said any time. I tell her I am calling my husband. I hang up. I cry - again. Everyone hugs me and starts asking questions. About 5 minutes later I realize that I have to call my husband. I go to someone's office and call him. He doesn't answer. I call his other number and he answers the phone. I sob into the phone. He asks if I'm okay. I ask if he can come to B* (town where I work and where our agency is). He's quiet. I sob. Then he asks "Did we get it?". I sob.

To Be Continued........................
