SO Excited!! :D user banned

So, SO and I finally picked a family... We are two of the most hard-headed, opinionated people I know, but somehow, out of 173 family brochures, we both wanted the same one.

It's insane. I never thought we'd find a family that felt "right" for this baby... I thought it'd be more like a good choice, but not the RIGHT choice, you know? How do you possibly say "Yes, if I can't raise my baby, I want this family to do it." confidently?

Well, we did. It's taken so much of the stress and turmoil out of the adoption process. We're expecting a phone call from them in just a few hours and I can not wait to finally talk to my baby's mom and dad.

On top of that, I had an emergency ultrasound (it turned out to be fine!) and we accidentally found out that we're going to give this family a perfectly healthy baby BOY! We are so thrilled and proud. At almost 29 weeks gestation he's already three pounds and thriving despite my health issues.

I never once imagined this could be a happy experience. But seeing these people and the life they can give my child really fills me with a sense of hope I haven't experienced in a long, long time.

I haven't updated in a while, so I just thought I'd share. :D
