It was a hard and scary decision.
But we ARE going for it!!
I talked to S for awhile the other day.
It was a nice conversation.
She told me that her reasons for choosing adoption.
She has the support of most everyone in her life,
which I think will make a difference for her,
especially in the aftermath of the adoption taking place.
We will remain hopeful.
We will also remain realistic.
She did share a pretty awesome story of picking Kevin and I.
Apparently, she has been perusing different adoption
professionals websites, checking out families.
She had a good feeling about Kevin and I,
and liked the fact that we are an interracial couple.
She printed out our online profile to show her mother.
While she was telling her mom all about us,
her mother mentioned that she had also been looking at
online profiles and had found a family
that she liked as well.
She told S,
"It sounds like the same family."
Her mom also printed the profile of the family she had seen.
S got her profile out, and so did her mom.
THEY WERE BOTH US!
I thought that was a really neat thing.
It will be a good baby book story.
