Our Dreams and Prayers came true

Sorry i have been away for a while, but i have been so busy lately. I tell you why. Is a long story but i will make short. On Tuesday April 14 morning at 7am i got a call from my agency saying that birth mom was being prepared to have the epidural and that she will be having the baby very soon. WE hurried to the hospital as soon as possible. When we got there the first person we saw was our SW and the birth mom's mother. She was very sweet lady and very supportive of the adoption we where a bit nervous this was our first time we where going to meet the birth mom. When we walked in the delivery room she was laying on the bed with contractions, but minimal pain just some discomfort. We all got along great! The birth mom asked us who wanted to cut the cord?? I was speechless and i said my husband if that is OK with you she said yes she also said that if i wanted to be in the room to see the delivery i said YES. I have never seen a live birth before and this was so important to me. At around 2pm the birth mom was ready to give birth and we all got ready to see this amazing event and at 2:52pm baby C was born we where all crying me, BM, grandma, hubby everyone it was amazing. Baby C weight 8lbs 1oz and was 19.5 inches long. He was so cute and i fell in love instantly. BM requested to spend time with baby for 1 hour before we got to hold him and that was fine with us. We went to pick up some Mexican food she wanted and 1 hour later we where back and the baby was in the nursery getting cleaned up. We got to cuddle with him and feed him. In the state of Texas BM has 48 hours to sign the TPR papers this was the longest 48 hours of my life and on Thursday April 16 at 3pm the papers where sign YAYYYYY!!! It was hard for BM to let go of the baby, but i told her that we promised to take good care of him and that she was part of our family too! She said she knows this was the best thing for her baby boy!! We gave her necklace with a pendant of a cross and a heart so that she can remember our promise to take good care of this baby. Thank you GOD for this prayer come true.

Birth Mom will be induced today

Agency called me that birth mom went to a doctors appointment this afternoon and that she will be in the hospital today to be induced at 10pm today and that she will probably deliver early Tuesday morning, but that the doctors appointment today went well and that she was 3 cm dilated. I asked them when should we be going to the hospital and they told us probably Tuesday morning. They where going to grab a bite to eat with the birth mom and then they will go to the hospital.

I asked them that i would like to bring a gift for the birth mom and that if they had any ideas and she said yes you can get her a simple heart or cross from James Avery i think this is perfect because i shop there all the time and i would love to buy her something there.

On our way to the store i received another call from agency saying that birth mom wants to meet us and that she wants us at the hospital yayyy. We have not met the birth mother and i think is just great to get to get to know her. I would love to see how she looks like and how she is. The agency told us to keep the phone close by that they will probably give us a call in the middle of the night and we can take off to the hospital.

In the meantime we put the car seat, stroller and bassinet together today. The baby clothes have been all washed and bottles cleaned.

Please keep us in your prayers!

BM will be induced next week

I got a call yesterday from my agency saying that BM will be induced next week and that the baby is healthy and ready to come out. The BM is still 2cm dilated, but she is in good health. We are so happy and excited. She said that we need to be at the hospital on Tuesday. I had to tell my job that beginning next week i need to take off and they where all very supportive. So far the BM just wants to be with the baby when he is born, but the agency said that can change and that she may want to be with him for the whole 2 days. We are getting emotionally ready and so far only a few of our family members know. I am praying every night that this is it for us. Please keep us in your prayers.

BM had to reschedule Ultrasound

I had not heard anything from my agency on BM ultrasound yesterday. So i decided to email her to find out today. My agency emailed me back today and said that they had to re schedule her Ultrasound because the Ultrasound results from the other doctors office had not arrived yet. So they re scheduled for Monday at 10am. I told my agency that i was scheduled to be on vacation next week and that if i should just hold of on that and she said yes to not take the vacation yet. I feel like i am getting the run around and that they are not telling us something i hope this is not the case and maybe i am just wrong and that everything will be ok. On Friday 04/10 is good Friday so we have it off anyways so i think i am just going to take off Thursday because i feel so tired and really need a break from work. Tomorrow Hubby and I will be going to Dallas to see the Nascar race that should be fun a lot of Friends from his job are going. TGIF!!!! Please pray for us ladies that the baby is OK.
