We made a goal to be as laidback as possible by sleeping in and eating a late breakfast, but I have to admit that the uncertainty made me nervous. Definitely a lot of anxious feelings and adrenaline pumping in the few minutes leading up until 12.

We were not able to have any friends or extended family join us for viewing our Match Day results. My wife and I set up my computer in our living room while our two boys were playing with cars on the floor — completely unaware of the significance of what we were about to find out through the Match letter.  

We were shocked and overjoyed. She read the email faster than I did and yelled: “WAKE WAKE WAKE!” We both were celebrating loudly, and the boys were extremely confused about why we were so excited. After taking a few moments to let it all sink in, we shared the good news with my parents and siblings on a group video call.
