Well, we've almost made it! In exactly 7 days, our sweet Makenna Michelle Hendrix will be joining our family. I am so incredibly thankful to our b/m for this wonderful gift. Her sacrifice is monumental and Joel and I just feel so blessed that she chose us to provide a loving home and family to her baby. Already having a child of my own, I can't imagine the emotional toll that this must take on a woman, to give her flesh and blood, to others, to raise and care for. I know the loss of a child and my heart aches for her. I can foresee a very emotional day, next Monday. I pray that God watches over our b/m and continues to give her strength, peace, and comfort during this time.
"K" has her final doctor appointment today and I believe she and our caseworker will be meeting with the hospital social worker to finalize the adoption plan. I hope to have more details to report after I speak with our caseworker this evening.
