Today the social worker met with the expectant parents we've been speaking with. The birth father signed the unborn surrender form and we finally got confirmation of the pregnancy.
I will be signing all our paperwork tomorrow and we'll begin financial assistance.
She's due with a girl at the end of June.
I know this is not 100% yet and it will be a long 5 months but I'm just going to take a few days and be happy.
Well the drama just doesn't end. We signed paperwork and sent that in Thursday afternoon. Thursday night a person with knowledge of our birth mother called our attorney to let her know what was going on. We had heard from another source that she might have accepted money from her last pregnancy then not placed. It was never confirmed. This person confirmed that story and that she had actually accepted payment from two families for the same pregnancy. And confirmed that she is planning to parent her current pregnancy. One source I can assume she has good intentions this time. Two, not so much.
This prompted us to insist on certain documentation for expenses the agency didn't feel was necessary. That was the beginning of the end. The lies went on all day (changing every couple of hours) ending with her father screaming at the agency. Crazy stuff.
She called us tonight twice. More backtracking and covering of prior lies I believe. It was odd.
So we have officially walked away. Thank goodness we found all this out now instead of in a few months.
