Hi all...we just decided to try adoption at the beginning of the year. We told our family and friends and then announced it on Facebook that we were looking into starting the adoption process. We got the home study paperwork about 2 weeks ago.
Well last night, my cousin messaged me on Facebook and said that her daughters friend was pregnant and wanted to give the baby up for adoption. She asked if we wanted to share our info with her. I said yes. Within an hour she was messaging me again. The girl called my cousin and wants to meet us. She looked at my FB page and loves my family pics. She said that she was excited because at least she knew some of our family so it would not be like giving it up to a complete stranger. I was messaging my cousin and she was texting the girl at the same time. The girl said she wanted me to be very involved in the pregnancy. She is 4 months and will find out the sex on Tuesday. She was even willing to push it back so that we could come but we told her that was not necessary. She wants to meet us in a week. She told us the baby is due in June and asked if that was too soon for us. I of course said no way.
So I guess we need to get the home study done quickly!! I am so nervous and excited at the same time. How do I keep my emotions in check during this process. I don't want to be upset if she changes her mind. Please send me all the positive vibes and prayers you can.
