I still can't believe we're in this weird limbo place. Will we have a baby girl in less than two months or will we not? I can't even wrap my head around the possibilities!

I got a letter from the "potential" birthmom today. I can't tell you how much we both just love her. She is literally amazing. It's funny, in my first letter to her, I mentioned how surreal this all is for us. In her letter, she said it was the same for her and went on to explain how she and the birthdad decided on adoption. Her honesty and openness are simply more reasons to love her. I have a feeling that even if this little girl is not placed in our arms, we will stay in touch with this family. This process never ceases to amaze me.

As an update, our visit with the parents has been scheduled for July 30. We will be counting down the days! We still have no news on the mom's court hearing. I am getting worried it might not happen for her until after the baby is born. I guess I shouldn't think like that. What is meant to happen will happen.

Thank you for all your support. I will of course let you know if there are any more updates. I feel like a bad blogger lately, but it's hard to write when I am just anxiously sitting here waiting myself! It takes all the energy I have to hold it together every day! I hope you'll be patient with me and know that I'll post any significant updates. Now, back to waiting...


  1. I've been wondering where you were! I'm glad you heard from her and are developing a relationship! Praying for you!

  2. I am so glad that you established such a great connection with the "potential"" birth parents!!! I am so proud of you and how you are handling this and I know I am so guilty in asking about any news, but I myself am very anxious as well. You are right, Sis, whatever happens will be what was meant to happen. I can't believe they haven't set a court date. To me it sounds like you are right and it may be delayed until after the baby has come. You know they take their sweet time with things like that. Well I hope for great things for all parties involved. Keep waiting and I will try to stay patient myself!!!! Love You
