The expectant mom with whom we were matched is approaching her delivery date.

Is she going to follow through with the adoption plan and place her baby with us?

Yes. She is having cold feet currently (I saw on your original post), but she will come around. It may be last minute though. I have a strange feeling that it could be up until she even sees the baby. For some Birth Moms I know that seeing the baby can be a deal breaker, but I get the opposite impression in this situation. It's like for her, seeing the baby, she's going to realize that she cannot handle taking care of another life just as she originally suspected.
This must be so emotional for you to be so close, yet so far. Good luck!

Thanks, Jamie! I was hoping this was the case.
