I was matched with a nice woman who is due this week with a baby girl. We were matched in September and have been in constant contact since - even making plans for places to catch lunch and dinner before she delivers (I live in KY and she lives in FL). We had discussed our Thanksgiving day plans. She had even changed her original plans to see her brother in GA once she found out it could cause issues with her being so far along, so she had decided to stay a few hours out to visit her children she lost custody of a long time ago. Our last talk was about finally getting an induction date from her doctor and our plans to catch up pre-baby.
That was the Friday before thanksgiving and neither I nor her case worker have heard from her since. My friends and family keep telling me to be positive and maybe she's so carried away with her holiday visit that she forgot her phone or ran out of minutes. I want to think that positive about all of this, but her due date is in three days, and still no word. If she's chosen to parent, I'm glad for her even if it breaks my heart and I drove two days to get here, but I just don't like being in limbo.
