Crazy Day

I was actually looking forward to writing a post to update you on the news we got today. We got picked by a birth mom in our state but about 5 hours after we got the call I got another call to tell us that she had already changed her mind. Once our case worker called her back and told her how excited we were she started having second thoughts and her parents agreed to help her out so she decided that she wants to parent the baby girl after all. I guess we are "lucky" it happened now instead of right before the baby was born, or worse yet, after the baby was born, but it still hurts a little. At least we finally got picked. I was looking just this morning at a new agency and considering giving them a try. I think I'll stick with ours a bit longer and see what happens.

Well first happy birthday! Second I am sorry about the birth mom chaning her mind. But I'm sure it is positive in the sense that if she picked you then someone else will too! Continuing to keep you guys in my prayers.

You are so brave to maintain such a bright and optimistic outlook on your adoption journey. It really is an inspiration...probably to more people/readers than you'll ever know!

Also, thank you so much for taking time to post such kind comments on my blog. :)

These "almosts" hurt. I think your outlook is great . . . I hope the call for "the one" comes soon . . .

First, Happy birthday. I hope that you have a great day today!!

Sorry about the birth mom changing her mind. Like you said how much better she did it now instead of later, but I can see how it would still be painful.

But hey you got picked. And another mom will come along soon!!
