Now that we're in to the month of September, it's fun to think back on one of our major reasons on getting into the waiting pool as soon as we could. Back in January, we had a giant snowstorm which shut things down around Seattle for a couple of days and also knocked out power. As we noted in an old post of ours about 'Snowmageddon 2012', there does tend to be slight increase in newborn placements ~9 months following major weather events/power outages.
Even though the odds of that potential baby boom resulting in us being picked between now and mid-October are not high, we've certainly got our fingers crossed! Also, I'm not a fan of rooting against humanity, but I might be secretly hoping for another snowstorm to come this fall/winter to boost our odds for 2013 :)
