Telling my Boss the News
Our adoption is such exciting news.
I practically burst at the seams whenever I think about it!
Why then am I so terribly nervous to tell my boss we are adopting?
My stomach literally turns into butterflies when I contemplate breaking the news to her. I tell ya, sometimes I am such an odd ball.
As part of our paper work we are required to have our workplace fill out a form. This form stares back at me day after day, beckoning me to bring along and have it competed. I have been ignoring it, completing other paper work first.
But I know that the time is fast approaching that I simply need to buck up and tell my boss the news.
I love my boss, really, I do! And I know she is very satisfied with my work. In fact, I received a raise within a few months of being hired. So why am I so anxious about telling her of our plans to adopt?
Any thoughts? Suggestions? Tips? Stories about when you told your boss you were expecting? (Whether it be through adoption or pregnancy.)
