My hubby just called and said that the agency left him a message this afternoon. A birthmom had her baby yesterday, and wants to place immediately. She's seeing letters tomorrow, and ours is going to be one of them. This is the first time our letter has been shown.
I KNOW I can't afford to get worked up. It's just begging for disappointment to let myself get excited. But the social worker said the mom wants her baby to be in the adoptive parents' home this weekend. I know what is meant to be, will be. But there's a little part of me that's going "Holy CRAP, we need to buy a crib mattress! We need diapers! This could happen for us." I seriously need to curb my enthusiasm.
For those of you who have been matched, how many times was your letter shown before you were chosen?
