She picked us!
What a whirlwind it’s been waiting for a baby to join our family. The adoption process is hard. The wait sucks, and you don’t think it’s ever going to happen to you, but then it does…
Today, we talked to a woman who thinks she wants us to parent her baby. We are SO EXCITED and it feels so right, but we know we still have a long way to go before we have a baby in our home. After looking at 30-some brochures she saw ours and something just clicked. She thought Jay looked like he was funny and that I was “fashionable.” All we can do at this point is giggle and say, “She picked us!”
Right now, there are so many things going through my head, but most importantly, I’m just really hoping she will like dinosaurs, monsters and airplanes.
The next step is for us to meet in person and agree that we all want to be considered “matched.” Being matched means that we will go off the market, so to speak, and she will not pursue any other families. We hope to make it to this next stage sometime in mid-July.
