We were hoping for better news, but that is just not in the cards for us. I think I jinxed this whole adoption! I say that as now the bad luck has struck one of the kids. This morning, as Rauan was enjoying his snack in front of the TV, he decided to start jumping around. Now I, as every parent would, told him to knock it off before he got hurt. So what happens, he gets hurt. Rauan, not being known for great balance, tripped over his own feet and went eye first into the corner of an open door of our entertainment center. Since he couldn't open his eye after that, I decided that I better take him to urgent care. Well they took one look at his eye and told me to get to the ER. Did I mention that, of course, Janiece was working. So I call her and she walked downstairs to meet us in the ER. Well after 4 hours in the ER, they showed us his deep corneal abrasion under a black light. They don't think it will affect his vision, but he is now on antibiotic drops. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.... back to the jinx. For those who know me, I don't like to talk about a life event(marriage, adoption, etc.) until it is COMPLETED. It is similar to the Bundy curse on MWC, where Al would refuse to admit that he was having good luck. Well I made the mistake of telling a few people at work about this adoption prior to the first trip and the bad luck has been raining down ever since. Since our rescheduled court date is in a few hours, I am just waiting for the phone call tomorrow giving us the next piece of bad news. My faith in anything positive is pretty much gone and I am really worried that now the bad luck has now taken the life of one of our pets and injured one of the kids. When is enough, enough?
