Future Baby-Catcher

I am a future baby-catcher! Yes......I was accepted to Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing!! I am SO HAPPY and thankful.

Okay, so here is how I found out........I was online, had one of my browser windows on Facebook, and I had just gotten a notification that one of my friends (who applied to the same class as me) had applied to our class' discussion board on FB. So for some reason, I decided to check my email first - I think I did that because I would have gotten an email notification of it as well, and well, maybe I just wanted to clear up my inbox. I'll never know exactly why I did it that way.

That is when I saw IT. THE email. THE email from Frontier. The first few sentences went as follows:

Dear FSMFN Student:

Welcome to the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing! I am pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to Class 82.

I read about that much and started bawling. Like gasping breathing and just crying tears of happiness.

I went back to our FB discussion board and posted that I had also been accepted. Then I called my mom, dad, brother & SIL.

I emailed Frontier back and said I gladly accepted my admission. :) I have to pay a huge amount of fees, but the deadline for that is still a few months away.

This is funny, but before I got accepted, I was thinking of different ways to announce (on FB) that I got accepted.

Side note: *sigh* That is what Facebook does to brainstorm what kind of status updates to post!

The status (that I posted to announce this news) is pretty much what I had imagined posting, even the teary smiley faces -----> :*). And you know what? I really did cry, as I mentioned above!

The news came at just the right time. It not only made my day, but probably my month.

I am so, so happy and so, so thankful. The dream that started 6 years ago is starting to come true.


  1. Praise God! I am so happy for you! As far as large fees, though, if you are planning on getting student loans you can request to have those fees deducted from your first student loan disbursement.

    happy dance, happy dance! woo

  2. Thank you, Rose! And thank you for the advice - good to know!
