A New Day
Night slipped into dawn.
No one slept.
It wasn’t planned but Doug and the kids were all up,
lounging on the couch, the floor, Jimmy’s face covered in peanut butter and jelly, the quickest snack his sister could make.
I could barely breath.
“The wait is killing me,” I said for the millionth time.
“I know,” Doug responded. “Soon.”
“Why is it taking so long?”
“Don’t go there.”
“I couldn’t bear it, knowing what she’s been through.”
The phone rang.
I didn’t put it on speaker.
Doug leaned in.
“You’re approved. The adoption is going forward.”
