Well, we haven't posted in a while not because there isn't a lot going on, but because there is so much going on. We have been on an intense rollercoaster, the kind that starts out with the corkscrew turns. We are now heading up the tracks and have no idea what is after that.

Here is the story. Last Friday we received an email that the agency would like to show our profile to a birth mom sometime this week. We said yes. Later that same evening, we received an email that our agency would like to show our profile to a birth mom that just gave birth to a preemie. We said yes. Sunday we found out the birth mom of the preemie chose another family.

Wednesday our profile was shown to the other birth mom and we were waiting to hear back if she chose us. However, today, we received a call from our agency and found out a birth mom that we didn't even was looking at our profile chose us! Yes, that is right folks she chose us.

Before you all get too excited - I know it is just too hard to contain - I want to clarify. Yes, she chose us as the couple she wants to proceed with and meet, but there is a possibility that she may change her mind and decide to parent her child. There is always that realm of possibility. It is her right and we need to be prepared for anything. We are working with our social worker to schedule a meeting with her next week and start to build a relationship.

I don't want to give out too many details before we meet with her. As soon as we know more we will share as much as is appropriate. For now, we can do a little happy dance quietly and discreetly while knocking on wood.


  1. WOW CONGRATS!!!! Sure it's just an initial meet up but thats a HUGE step! I'm so happy for you guys!

  2. Yeah! Thinking of the two of you. I bet this waiting game is going to be tough.

  3. Holy moly!!!! I'm geeking out in Zoo town for you right now. That is incredibly wonderful.

  4. Thinking of you, praying for you, hoping for you.
