We have exciting news, but we don't want to get to far ahead of ourselves.
On Tuesday we took some profile books to the attorneys. We were there for an hour & a half talking. They told us about a young girl that hasn't been matched yet and she would be coming in the next day to look at families & have an ultrasound. We told them to show her our profile.
Yesterday evening we got a call from the attorneys. They showed her 4 families and we are her #1 choice. She wants to meet us so we will have to call the case worker next week to set up a meeting. The ultrasound showed a healthy baby girl! She should be born somewhere between the middle of May & beginning of June. Oh my....I'm not sure I know what to do with a little girl. :) I guess Joel might know since he has two younger sisters. ;)
Now, here's where it gets crazy. The birthmother is a big mess. She's 22 and including this pregnancy she's been pregnant 6 times. Her first pregnancy was at the age of 13. There are some health issues that need to be prayed about because she smokes cigarettes and has used drugs, but all her babies have been healthy so far. She's raising 2, had 1 abortion, 1 miscarriage, and placed 1 for adoption last year.
So needless to say there's a lot to think about & pray about. I'm excited to meet her. We'll update more after the meeting.
