Hello! I'm Jara and about to become an AUNT!!!

I was wondering if I could get some advice from you all. My sister called me last night to tell me that they got THE call!!! They've been matched with a little one coming in November!!! My ENTIRE family is BEYOND excited and there are no words to really express our Joy at this news!!!

I was wondering if any of you have any advice for me to help her? Is there anything that I can do for her to help with the wait?

I have boughten and read 'Adoption is a family affair', Loved it and passed it on to my sister for her to read and pass on. And I've gotten her a Baby Briefcase to keep all of her paper work in. All of those things were in preparation for a little one, but now we KNOW that a little one is coming.. is there anything I can do for her and her husband?

Thank you so much!!

Sounds like you have done great so far! It is nice to hear of supportive families during adoption.
I would just celebrate this baby as any other baby that your sister would have given birth to (except don't remind her that the baby doesn't look like them).

Hi and congratulations! That is great news! It sounds like your doing everything just perfect! Just letting her know that your there for her is wonderful and you have gone above and beyond! Closer to time you might consider throwing a baby shower for her but I would wait til a little closer to the date. Good luck and we are happy for you all!

Thank you all for your replies! I think that all of my family is VERY supportive for them. We are all excited! My sister and her husband are actually on their way to meet the birthmother (stopped here on the drive out there) and it was exciting to talk to her about their LO! She and I went shopping and bought baby stuff, and I gave her several things that i was now longer using. Along with books for the 1st year and things like that. We talked about names, and strollers, car seats. I'm so excited to help her with baby stuff!

They are to meet with the birthmom soon, and I'm praying that is goes well. As I know they are both nervous about meeting her. And are afraid that she won't like them...

Hey Jara! My sister is looking to adopt too! She and her fiance (once married) will look into it more. They are so super excited, and I am too! Our whole family is as well. I am sure they will love them, and everything will go fine!! Good luck to you ALL!!
