You're sweet yourself.
I enjoy reading your blogs. It's like you basically conveying how I feel (during the adoption process). Adoption is such a very long, frustrating and emotional process that it comforts me to know that others have gone through, or are going through, the same things I am.
So, thank you very much for sharing your experience and stories.
As for our "story", you are aware of our last call... about a birthmother who didn't want her son to be circumcised. Well, I spoke with our social worker, Roxanne, last Monday, and she told me that the birthmother really liked our profile. Also, the birthmother gave birth early (36 weeks) a week ago. However, the birthmother chose a Hispanic couple instead, because she was more comfortable with a Hispanic couple (the birthmother is Hispanic). Rob and I were fine with her choice, and it was understandable.
Now, the sad news is the baby was recently admitted to another hospital, because there is something wrong with his reflexes. He's having trouble eating and keeping food down. The adoptive parents who were chosen are having second thoughts about the baby, because they're afraid of any long-term effects.
Rob and I prayed, and will continue to pray, that the baby will be okay, that he turns out to be healthy, and that he goes to a happy, loving set of parents.
Well, that's the latest development. I'll definitely post anything that is of any excitement or new.
