Crazy 24 hours.... — The Bump
Adoption

Crazy 24 hours....

The last 24 hours seem like a dream. I was at work when the agency called and said they had a "drop in" that delivered a 6 lb 9 ounce 18 inch long little boy. Emphasis on little. We got to meet the birth mom and she was really sweet and focused on making sure the baby got bonding time with us. We were able to get a room in the hospital and able to keep the baby with us throughout the night. The birth mom asked us for the name we are going to give him and wanted to put that on the birth certificate. His name is Jayce Efren A. Now we are at home and still in disbelief. Well, and really tired. Between my husband snoring and Jayce waking up every few hours I believe I got 3 hours of sleep. I am now feeling a second wind that I hope allows me to get his room more situated and some bottles sterilized.

  • Oh, that is just wonderful!  Congratulations on your new baby boy.  The sleep will get better in time, too.

    It's funny, I was exactly the same size at birth- 6lbs 9 oz, 18 inches.  I think it is a perfect size for a baby!

  • Congratulations! That is so wonderful.
  • That's great!  We were matched like this too (although after the call we had to drive 12 hours to get Ben and stay 10 days in a hotel).   The sleep will get better, I promise.  Enjoy your time with your new little one, mommy!
