The adventure begins

Today was the day for which we have spent over two years waiting. While at work, I received an email from our agency that said "Hi Stephen and Candace. Well the day has arrived. Your appt date at the SDA is Tuesday Dec 12, 2006. Congratulations."

The email came at 9:10 am. I tried to phone Candace right away but I dialled about half of the numbers and had to put the phone down and take a moment to compose myself. I then called her school and found out that she was in a meeting. I left a message for her to call me...and then waited...and waited. She finally called back at 10:15 am. By that time I was ready to burst with excitement. I even gave her heck (good-naturedly of course) for taking so long to get back to me. I told her how difficult it was to focus

After speaking to Candace I called my mother in Nova Scotia and then some friends. Meanwhile Candace told her staff and a couple of other friends. Within an hour I was receiving emails and phone calls from well-wishers. This continued for the rest of the day and into the evening. Its funny...I had imagined what this day would be like and it is all that I imagined and more. It is so incredible to finally know that our time is come...and darn exciting to be able to share our news with others.

So...I could have started posting prior to this day but I decided that this would be an appropriate starting point. The adventure begins!
