I posted here a bit ago asking some questions regarding a potential adoption situation that we knew about. Well that birth mother had a change of heart, but in the mean time we were contacted about a few others... it's been a whirlwind. I know you had mentioned before to keep you updated, so here's a quick update on what's going on.

Here is a link to my threads on my board about what is going on....
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f7...post-55-a.html (Overwhelmed... Update in Post #22!!!! And Post #55...)

And today's update thread after my first meeting with Momma C
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f7...ent-great.html (Back... and it went GREAT!)

At this point she seems pretty certain that this is the right path for herself and this little baby girl. I will keep praying that things will fall into place. I think it's natural for me to still have a small feeling of doubt, thinking everything will fall apart, but for the most part I'm just thrilled to be on this journey!

Anyway, hope you don't mind me popping over with an update. Any words of wisdom you might have would be greatly appreciated! I really respect your thoughts on this subject.... it's a perspective that I don't have and greatly appreciate having from you all!

Congrats!!!
Thank you for keeping us updated, I've been thinking about you a lot lately! I am so so excited and happy for you! I don't know you well, but there is no doubt in my mind that you are a fantastic person and will be an amazing birth mother.
I found this really cool website the other day that sells Birth Mother gifts, mainly jewelry, I thought I'd pass it along in case you are considering getting her a gift for the hospital: the r house couture by therhouse on Etsy

Also, if your Birth Momma is in need of any extra support pre adoption, or post adoption I have a ton of great resources, so just let me know if you want me to pass anything along.

And again, Congrats!!!!!

Oh my gosh! That is sooo amazing.

That is something I regret about my pregnancy, I wish I had involved my daugther's parents more in the process of the pregnancy. OOHHHH I can't wait to hear how things go!

Shantel will be coming over for dinner with her current boyfriend this week. I'm actually kind of nervous, even though I have spent enough time with her that it shouldn't phase me....

That is awesome!!! I can completely understand why you would be nervous, but I bet all that will melt away as soon as she walks in the door. I think it's so great that you are developing such a great relationship with her
