Is Zen A State?

If it is, I want to move there. I have been out of town for the past week so imagine my suprise when I checked the big board to learn that JUNE LIDS are in the matching room! That's right boys and girls-the McGyver family will be matched with their Dreamsicle sometime soon! I lost complete control over my emotions when I read that. I did not expect to have the reaction that I did but I immediately started crying and ran downstairs to share the news with McGyver. He got a lil' teary eyed himself and we laughed and cried and held each other tight for quite a while. Since that moment I have had such a sense of peace. It sounds strange but just knowing that sometime probably within the next 30 days our family will be matched with the little girl we have dreamed and prayed about has calmed me. I realize that we will not know the specifics of our sweet Dreamsicle for a few months after that until we actually receive our referral but we will be matched. The most important day of our journey until we actually travel to get her will be happening in a very short while. I love the inner peace and warm feeling I am enveloped in right now and I wish that I could remain in this state right up until we receive our referral. Do you think Mapquest would have directions to Zen?
