Hi all! While it was not my intention to leave you hanging for too long...I guess I did and I'm sorry!
So, yes. It is true. We have been chosen by a wonderful birthmom, "M" who is due December 29th. We are so excited. I have had the chance to sit down with her over lunch and she is such a sweet spirit. We are so excited to be able to know her. We do not know if the baby is a boy/girl. He/she was shy on M's first ultrasound!
Our caseworker Hannah is optimistic so she took down our LDSFS profile (you'll notice the link is no longer working) and asked us to put a "Congrats" banner on our ParentProfiles.
We are excited but as many of you know it has been a difficult journey for us and we enter this with our eyes open and love in our hearts. A failed placement and a birthmom scammer have left us a little wary, but we can only press forward with faith. Adoption is a tough road with many heartaches and blessings for those who walk it. We love our M with all our hearts already and no matter what happens we will always love and respect her. Like I said, adoption is tough. Adoption is love.
So, with that being said, I was unable to give an update yesterday because somebody silly (me) turned off the phone already...oops. So, I'm sitting in the business center of Holiday Inn in Albuquerque, NM to write this update.
I hope by the time we get to our new house, the phone will be up and running and I will be able to get back online.
In the meantime...today was National Talk Like A Pirate Day...so I hope you scurvy knaves had a grrrrrreat day. And if there is a bounty on your head....I hope you get it off. :)
See you on the other side.
