Today we got the call that we were chosen again!
A little girl due in the next week!
Ahhh!! I’m so happy that the call just happened to come in just as I pulled into my driveway…because the tears of joy that followed would have been a strange sight in the middle of Publix.
Something about this situation felt so different to us than the last ones we presented on. The late date of the birthmom’s adoption plan, the proximity to us (in an adjoining state). The due date right around Chirstmas Day- Paddy’s birthday. Her family being so supportive of the adoption. We are exciting and nervous and suddenly have a very long to-do list. Please pray for us the next couple weeks as they will be intense, even if everything goes perfectly. And there is always risk that things won’t go as planned as well. Adoption is putting yourself out there in so many way, and now we are preparing for a baby that we are told will be our daughter but we cannot be sure of it quite yet. But all babies deserve to be anticipated with joy, and that’s exactly what we plan on doing:)
