Thanks! After 6 years of waiting for a child I really hope this will work out. They usually don't allow potential adoptive parents to meet the child before they make a decision but due to his condition and circumstances they have decided it would be in the best interest for both us and the child to meet before either side makes a decision. I think that's pretty awesome. We know he's low functioning and on the severe side and know what to expect but as with many things it's different to experience it first hand. It doesn't deter my interest at all, honestly, I feel he hasn't been given the opportunities and resources he deserves and am bound and determined to take full advantage of any and every resource available if I adopt him. I think he just needs a mommy and daddy to love him for who he is and will support him regardless of any progress or backslides, and we are willing to do it. <3 <3 <3 I can't wait!

Beth- will most definitely post about it! I'm so nervous/anxious...what if this is it? What if the child I have been waiting for is him and how will it feel the first time I see his face in person. I will def. be bringing a camera (just incase these become the "kodak" scrapbook moments of my life). I really feel in my heart this is it though. I hope his worker agrees

Also, Beth...that would be a great post for everyone that has adopted. How did you feel the moment you saw your child face to face for the first time. Would love to hear everyone's stories!

Jessie, I really believe in my heart he is. No matter how many other children I look at the profiles for my heart brings me back to him. It's such an over powering gut instinct too. My husband pointed out over the weekend I was "nesting". I've been tearing the house apart cleaning and baby proofing it. It's also interesting in the aspect that NOTHING in my live ever goes as planned, everything that has been great or meant to be is on a whim and generally spontaneous. I'd spent 6 years trying to get pregnant and carry a child to term and it didn't happen. I saw the ad for foster care/adoption classes and signed hubby and me up before I told him a day before the classes. We had two other matches that we initiated interest in and neither ended up working but this little guy was just slipped into our hands and everything has been wham bam. We sent the inquiry early to mid-October and we're already getting prepared to meet him and his foster dad. The social workers just want to make sure we're serious about parenting such a severely autistic child...and after much research and talking to people with autistic children I know it will be hard, but well worth the time and effort. My hubby has a colostomy, which is a pretty significant disability and I still love him just the same as I would had he not had a colostomy. I think dealing with him and his doctor's appointments has given us the strength and courage to tackle this. I just hope that everyone around me will be supportive and understanding for his sake

We're officially scheduled for November 9th (next Tuesday). The matching conference is November 10th. I am so excited and nervous (but in a GOOD/HAPPY way). We meet with our worker this Friday to discuss the questions she will be asked during the matching teleconference that way she knows where we are where we are going with things. It's looking really hopeful
