When I was pregnant with my boys I used to have CRAZY dreams about them. I remember having a dream about giving birth to Matthew and he came out walking and talking. I had a dream when I was pregnant with Josh that he came out and he was some sort of weird animal and I was totally dissapointed that he wasn't as cute as I thought he'd be. LOL

I always chalked those dreams up to pregnancy hormones. Because when you're pregnant, don't you chalk EVERYTHING up to pregnancy hormones?! It's a nine month free pass.

Anyway, I've officially discovered that it has nothing to do with pregnancy hormones because lately I've started to have crazy dreams about Clarissa. Last night I dreamed that they called to tell me that Clarissa was coming home and when they were telling me about her they said that she had just turned one. Then they brought her to me and she was a teenager (who couldn't speak for some reason), only they refused to admit it! They showed me her birth certificate and it said that she was one, so she must be, even though she was obviously not.

I kept telling them that they gave me the wrong baby and they finally got tired of arguing with me so they went to find me another baby. The next "baby" they brought me were two kids, a boy and a girl, who were probably about Josh and Matthews age and they obviously weren't Korean. Where were they getting all these kids from?!

I felt really bad because I didn't want to keep giving kids back if they needed a home but none of them were Clarissa. The agency didn't seem to care. They said they'd find me a child and they found me THREE, so what was my problem?

Is it possible to chalk it up to adoption hormones? Surely there's such thing as adoption hormones, right? :)
