Nope, this is not like the kiddie pool you have nightmares about, where you just hope that everyone is wearing leakproof swim diapers! It's the good ole betting kind.
First, some history and then the game...
History -- a couple of pals in our adoption Yahoo group set up "Baby Pools" so that friends could guess on their kiddo's arrival. I laughed because it's common among my doggie friends to do "puppy pools" when they have a litter due (altho I'm not usually organized enough to do them). So then a doggie friend said "hey, where's the pool?!" So, here it is...
The Game -- you make guesses about Sarah and whoever is closest to correct wins a prize! Guess the following:
1. Sarah's date of birth (babies are typically 7-20ish months at referral)
2. Sarah's province of birth (see China map above)
3. Sarah's weight at her last medical exam (which was probably a month or two before referral)
For my dog friends - no, we are not guessing litter size; she will be a singleton! We're also not guessing sex since we requested a girl... even tho some pals from our agency were surprised last month to be referred a boy! they'd requested either sex, but come on, with a 95% chance of getting a girl they thought they were safe with pink and ruffles!
The Prize -- heck, what do you care? you're doing this for fun, not for the prize! but I promise, it will be something fun or yummy. once I figure out what it is...
How to Play -- just reply to this post. Have fun!
