I've had a horrible HORRIBLE day (one of many that I've had in the past few months) but today I opened my email and had a note from the adoption director....apparently the BM wrote us a letter so he typed it up for us :

David and Brandi,
Just a quick note to let you guys know youre in my thoughts. Everything is ok. The baby seems to be healthy and growing well. I hope to someday meet you guys. Right ow Im not too sure what is going on with my case or how much longer I will be incarcerated. Even though Im not exactly thrilled about being in jail but getting arrested actually saved my life and I am grateful to be 4 months clean now. The jail whre Im at offers a drug progrm during your in incarceration and Im learning so much. I just want to thank you for your prayers. I will write you again soon as soon as I have more updates.
Best wishes to you both!
Sincerely, Julie

The director also mentioned that it appears as though she is looking at a possible 7 year sentence, which is awful for her, but great for us because she has no other options but to sign over her parental rights. This situation truly is a blessing for us and I pray for our BM and unborn baby everyday. I hope this adoption affords Julie the opportunity to stay clean and drug free and start a new life for herself when she is released.

Sorry, but I just really wanted to share as I realize I have been a bit negative lately and wanted to express some joy on the board so I'm not a complete downer

Hey Brandi,
Don't ever worry about being a downer...last time I checked the name of our message board wasn't
"Trying to Conceive while being absolutely perfect in every way"

I am happy to hear the good news about your BM, and sad for her to have to be in there so long, I hope she comes out a better person than she went in.

How nice of her to write you a letter. I hope that this is can be a new start for her - and I also hope that she realizes how lucky she is that you will be raising her baby.
