We're matched

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

I know I haven't been around for a while, but I thought I'd update here for people who remember me.

 

We're matched again.  We've had a long wait and a failed match and a couple other close calls.  I really hope this is it.  Mom is due July 9 (31 days, not that I'm counting lol) but apparently has a history of going a bit early.  She doesn't want to meet us so I don't think I'll have much to update for the next month, but I'll post if we hear anything.

 

I'm having a hard time walking the line between excited, hopeful, trying not to be too hopeful, scared to death, and more excited.

I just wanted to update here...

 

Today is J's due date!!!

 

We're nervous as hell, scared of another massive disappointment, but hopeful and even a little excited.  I was very excited and not at all nervous a couple weeks ago.  I was very confident that it would all work out.  Now that we get closer I'm more a big freaked out ball of exposed nerves.  Hopefully we'll find out soon.

We are in New Jersey!  And it's a boy!!!!

 

The baby was born on Tuesday. Everything happened so fast. J decided she wanted to meet us after all so we had to pack and drive down. We met her yesterday morning. The meeting was very emotional. We won over J's mother who initially did NOT favor adoption. J didn't say much, she is having a very hard time. Prayers would be appreciated for her. She needs them. :(

We also got to meet the baby! He's absolutely beautiful!!!  He's being discharged today so we're waiting for a phone call from the social worker to tell us when to be there to pick him up! J can sign the papers no sooner than tomorrow, at which point they're final.

It's all happening so fast but let me tell you the hours are creeping by!

I'm a lurker here on this forum (as DP and I are considering foster parenting) and your story is one of many that has touched me. Congratulations on your new baby boy. :-)

Congratulations on your new son! Thrilled for you!  Enjoy your babymoon and have a safe trip home.

 

Also praying for J.  I pray that she is comforted in her grief and that she has peace with the decision she made.
