THIS IS OUR SON, UMMMM DAVID

I don't know if I've posted here on my blog or just in private emails that I've only had a couple dreams about our China adoption. One would think (wouldn't one?) that with as much time that I think about Ava and about China......I would dream about her? Yes, one would think, but nope.....Not so. Well, the night before last I had a dream that we received our referral and in my dream I received my child!.....Not sure if I was in China.....That part wasn't very clear. The rest of it WAS quite clear. First, we did NOT receive a referral for a girl......She was a he. We did NOT receive a baby (as young as possible)......We received a 4-5 year old boy. Although he had the most beautiful almond shaped eyes and I believe he was Chinese......He already spoke perfect English. He also made it VERY clear that he didn't like me....Not one bit. I was trying my hardest to win him over, but it didn't go very well. One issue that he and I had was that he wanted to be called by his Chinese name.....DAVID......And I was doing everything in my power to convince him to take ANY other boys name.....Just NOT David. Now, if I offended anyone named David or with a husband, son, brother, uncle, grandfather or second cousin named David....Let me explain. My EX-husband was named David (Dave) and it's just not one of my favorite names because of that....In fact it sorta makes my skin crawl. ;) With that in mind, you may understand (or maybe you won't! ;) why I was trying to list off different boys for him to pick from, but he wanted no part of any of them. His name was David....End of story. I WAS going to let him have his way in the end, but I wasn't very happy about it. I'm just happy that I haven't seen many, err I mean ANY referrals with boys having a Chinese name of David. ;) That's a relief!

EDITED TO SAY.......I wouldn't mind (after the inital shock wore off...Since everything I've bought is PINK!!!!!!) if we did receive a referral for a boy. I just don't want his name to be David.

Well, if you were going special needs then I'd tell you that's exactly what's available right now. Pretty much all boys that age.

But the only people I have heard of getting boys are people who checked that they would accept either a boy or girl in the very beginning.

So...I think you are safe :)

Funny dream! I is amazing what comes out of our subconscious while we sleep. Thankfully it was only a dream and you will be getting a girl named Ava, as young as possible, all decked out in PINK!!!

If we receive a referral for a boy, well ummm....I wouldn't be very thrilled to say the least. Wonder why? But, I have dreams of a 3-4 year old girl. I think the longer the wait has gone, the older she has gotten in my dreams.

Well, you might remember Pipo having dreams of being referred an ITALIAN boy! And the CCAA still came through with sweet Claire :O) I think you'll be okay!

Are you sure you aren't getting Connie's kid? ;)

I hear ya on the name association, BIG TIME. No way I could call my kid by my ex's name because then he'd constantly be called "a-hole"... ROFLMAO!

Sounds like one very familiar dream, mama.

Hmmm....my guy spoke Italian though.

I think your guy's name should be Paco! Just because (it's not David).

Aww, isn't it funny how you have those dreams? I had them too, it's just your brain's way of releasing some steam!

I hate it when someone ruins a perfectly good name for the rest of folks named that name!

I wonder what these boy dreams "really" mean? Very interesting!! I could handle a boy. It would be the age that would throw me! :o)

Hopefully we'll see soon!! Keeping my fingers crossed for all of you!

You're not the only one, dreaming of "older boys"! At least your son spoke english!!! PIPOs spoke Italian!!!!

Ahhh... it all makes me laugh. You will get a sweet baby girl, and her name will be Ava. Don't worry.

Todd had me convinced we would have a son... it wasn't meant to be, and I'm "overjoyed" with our beautiful baby girl.

I was cracking up when I read about your dream. I think David is a fine name. You could nickname him "Davy Gravy". Kinda has a ring to it!
