Bizaare Dream

Don't know if I mentioned it early, but a couple of months ago, I had a really bizaare dream. We got a phone call to say our "birth mother" was about to have the baby. My Mother-in-law hops on a plane, and goes to China, to be with the birth mother while she's giving birth, and to bring the baby home. It was a boy! I remember thinking (in my dream) Why is my mother-in-law going over? We don't know who the birth mother is! And a boy... are you sure?!! I remember my mother-in-law got off the plane, and it was dark and raining - and we saw our tiny son. So another "weirdness" is, that we brought home a newborn baby, not a toddler, as we're expecting.

I've been thinking about this dream quite a bit, of late, as RQ has said, there are many more boys being allocated. First up, we'd love a son! We're not fussed either way, although we have definitely "prepared" for a girl (Shannon is right, if we're allocated a boy, we'll definitely have to do something about his clothes!!!) So what's your thoughts? If you are allocated a boy... will it make a difference?

Kris, I think the "english" way of spelling would probably be double n, on Quin. I only typed Quin, as I've seen a few babies referred and their given name is Qin. (Which I know is pronounced Chin... but I'd pronounce it as Quin - and add the u... so's not to confuse english folks!!!)
Hey, just ask Miss M, about her name - she cannot find it on any mug, keyring or toy! Poor thing. So if we had a Quin - I'm sure he'd be in the same boat!!! Yes, I'm a terrible name-giving Mummy! H-Man has his name on everything, which ticks Miss M off even more!!!

Oooh interesting dream! I wonder if there are any hidden messages in it... or if it was really just a weird dream!

Aaron dreamt a while back that a little Chinese boy was standing next to the bed trying to wake him up.

Personally I don't care whether we're referred a girl or a boy...just as long as we (eventually) get our referral. ;)

We really don't have a preference, though for various reasons we haven't bought anything for our child.

Ohh...nifty dreams! Did you specify for a girl or indicate either?

Keep smilin!

And I thought I had interesting dreams!

The nice thing about having a different name is that they won't have to worry about being in the same class as 4 othere children with the same name.

I would be surprised if we got a boy, since we asked for a girl, but I would be THRILLED nonetheless. I love BOTH! But yeah, I think I might have to take a bit of the "pink" out of his wardrobe...:-)

Love the dream...very detailed : )

Well our daughter will never find stuff with her name on it either b/c of the spelling..oh well, with the internet we can just order stuff! Also, she is from Qichun so her surname was Qi....hmmm, maybe you will get a Qichun baby?

For us, it depends on the day...Today one of my three sons stuck a small rock in his ear and had to go to the peds to have it extracted. So, today a fourth boy doesn't sound like such a great idea...;o)

Ava's family said...

If we get a surprise referral for a boy I will gladly accept. I do think that at a later time we would do another adoption for Ava. I just couldn't part with all her cute little pink clothing and her quilt and her pink room and her dolls! However, if it's a boy....I think I'm going with Aiden =)

not many places can you find LeeAnne on a button, mug, pencil, etc. and most people don't spell it right either or just don't capitalize the A. I know how your daughter feels...
I like the spelling of Quin.
