PRAY!

Please keep the prayers coming...things have not gone quite as planned. Remember the 60% statistic...we still aren't sure if she is going to sign. She says yes but has waffled. Due to his unexpected entry, she did see him and that has been hard for her. We just left the NICU (he's doing okay) so she could see him - she says for goodbye but we do not take anything for granted. We are nervous wrecks and just praying that all will work out and that we will be able to come home with a baby. We know that we may not and that would be so sad for us.

He is adorable!

Jenna said...

I have also been thinking about you all day. I know that whatever decision is made it will be the right one... but I hope and pray that the birth mother has the courage to see that the four of you are the perfect family for this little guy... and to remember why she chose you to be his parents.

Alaina, I'm prompted to share this having been the nurse for a few postpartum moms who are adopting out their babies. I hope this is not too late to help if needed. It is so hard for these moms and postpartum emotions make it even more crazy and confusing for them.

I've seen the adoptive parents interview the mom (you may have already done this) about themselves- favorite childhood memories, favorite foods/book/color.... as well as a family health history. This dialog turned from awkward to peaceful for both sides by the end. The birth mom really wanted to know that she would not be a forgotten piece of the child's history. It was still hard, but beneficial to hear from the adoptive parents their intentions again and true gratitude for bringing a beautiful life into the world.
