Ladies.... I can't even begin to explain how perfect that whole meeting went. We were all very nervous at first and you could tell she was really scared about meeting us. I told her right off the bat that we were just as scared as she was. She is just adorable (no pics yet ) and was pretty quiet at first. Over the course of the almost 2 hours she really came out of her shell more. We had brought a photo album with pics, so after ordering food we flipped through that and told a few stories. She asked us a few questions and we asked her a bunch too. She is dead set on moving forward with adoption... it took her a bit to come to that conclusion but now knows it's for the best for everybody.

She said she thinks we're great people and is even more excited now to move forward with things. She kept calling her "your baby" and rubbing her tummy... It makes me all teary eyed just thinking about it. She is wanting an open relationship with letters and pictures at first, and then having visitation set up for down the road when things are settled. She definitely wants us at the hospital for the delivery and taking care of the baby the whole time after the birth. She just wants to have a few moments with her in the delivery room right afterward.

She asked if we had everything ready for a baby yet, and we said no... and her response was "Well you better get ready for a baby girl.... she's coming!"

When we got up to leave, she asked if we wanted to feel her tummy and get to know our baby better. As I put my hand on her stomach... I knew in my heart that this is it.... my baby is coming to me and by the grace of God I will be holding a baby girl within the next couple of months.

I gave her the biggest hug I could muster and we are going to talk again this week about when we want to get together again. She is meeting with her counselor on Wednesday so we will know more then.


Ladies... I'm gonna be a mommy...

Her EDD is November 23rd, but she expects to go early (she did with her last pregnancy - twins!).... We could be mom and dad in less than 8 weeks!!!!

We are going to be ordering a crib this week, even though things could go south, we want to be prepared and we want her to see how excited we are so that she continues to feel excited for us! In the next few weeks we'll be painting the room and probably going to register for stuff....eeeeekk!!!!!
