Long Day

It's only 7:15 but it feels like a forever long day - it's been a bit emotional and a bit challenging. But...TPR is signed! We are thrilled and blessed beyond measure but really feeling for C tonight. Pray for her, please. I cannot imagine making the courageous decision she has made. She did come to say goodbye to him after she signed.

Much of this part of our journey will forever be carried in our hearts and shared with our son when he is ready. We have experienced the gamut of emotions but we love that little boy sooo much! We are going back to spend a couple more hours with him. We will post a picture etc. when we get back to our hotel tonight. There is much more that still needs to happen before this little guy is officially and forever ours but this is a great big step. We are so thankful.

Maybe we should wait until the poll ends to post next? Or should we end the poll early? Or should we wait for 100 votes? :) :)

So happy for you guys. We will pray for C tonight. I know that your hearts are heavy for her tonight even in the midst of your happiness. You will be able to convey to your little boy how much his birth mother loved him.

What exciting news! We will continue to pray for Calvin, Patrick, Andrew, you, and the selfless mother "C" who made the difficult choice to place her son in your loving care. We hope to see photos posted soon of your three sons.

It seems so much longer than 3 1/2 days that we have been waiting for this answer to prayer! We rejoice with you in the TPR being signed and do pray for C and for comfort for her. Can't wait to see a picture!

I think the majority has spoken... enough with the waiting!!!!!!!!!!
We're all holding our collective breaths! This is more anxious than watching Michael Phelps and wondering if he'll medal again!
