When I woke up around 6:00 p.m. I checked my email and there was a message about a potential placement in our age range. The email said to call if interested, so I called, only to find that someone else had received the placement. Our licensor informed me that email would be the primary form of communication about placements. I had figured that a placement would warrant a phone call, and was satisfied keeping my phone nearby and frequently checking for missed calls. Apparently email makes for a faster way to communicate with several families at once when an urgent placement is needed. Sigh. I was disappointed that on the one day I wasn't checking my email throughout the day I missed out. I generally check email several times a day.
The funny thing is that in most cases I so much prefer email. I hate phones, but I've been pretty anxiously awaiting this phone call. Such is life I suppose. I made sure to set up the email I get foster care info on to my cell phone last night, this way I will not miss out again and can keep on checking for placements on my phone. :)
Thus the wait continues. At least I know they haven't forgotten us!
