Matched and excited/nervous... — The Bump

Matched and excited/nervous...

We've been waiting with our agency for nearly a year. Just now filling out papers to renew and we got THE CALL on Thursday. Birth mom chose and is due next month. There is some legal risk with the 2 potential birth fathers but we are all in. We meet tomorrow and I'm SOO nervous. This is our 2nd adoption but already so different than our first.

We are very familiar with the undpredictability of the outcome of being matched. Our son's birth parents changed their mind the day after he was born and we had been matched with them for 6 months. Thankfully they changed their minds again when he was 7 days old and TPRs were signed. We are over the moon about him and can't wait to give him a brother or sister.

Good thoughts/prayers for us this next month? Thanks guys!!

    After a m/c, a year of failed treatments with an RE, and a failed surrogacy option, we are grateful to open our home, heart, and lives to foster children.
    We are hoping to adopt when the timing is right.
    Come on forever child- find us! :)
    P/SAIF DEFINATELY welcomed!!!

  • Meeting went great. Look forward to building a relationship with EM and her parents. We are having them over this weekend as well as both sets of our parents. Baby is due 4.26 we found out. Eeek! So excited. Also, it's a GIRL (I bawled when they told us). Let the nursery designing begin... :)
