I have a work friend who is adopting. He and his wife have been at this for years, just like us. They found out a couple of weeks ago that a birth mother had selected them and that she was expecting TWIN GIRLS in January.
I just heard that the birth mom is going to be induced TOMORROW and that my friends should get their baby girls on CHRISTMAS DAY!
I'm nearly in tears, I'm so excited for them.
I'm also anxious - now comes the agonizing part with adoption. Will she change her mind? Will everything go well?
It's so hard to want something so much that is such a blessing for you and yet such a heartache for another mother somewhere.
J&L will be FABULOUS parents. I am praying so hard that this happens for them and that they get their family on Christmas Day.
If you believe in happy thoughts - please send prayers, clap your hands (thanks, Tinkerbell) or just positive thoughts to the Powers that Be that this little family will have THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!
We're praying for you!! Keep us posted, J&L!!
