We can't hardly believe we are saying this, in fact as we told our parents, family and friends it still didn't seem real to us...
WE ARE OFFICIALLY MATCHED!
Our baby will be born in September, and we will get to take s/he home from the hospital!! We were so blessed to have met our birthmom through a friend at church. Our birthmom, 'A' is just amazing. If we were to meet under any circumstances, we would be friends. I can't even put into words how highly I think of her and how much I appreciate this HUGE sacrifice she is making. When this all starts to set in a little more I hope I am able to fully express my love for her.
We meet 'A' a couple of weeks ago. Right from the beginning, things just clicked. She then met with our agency a couple of times, her and I talked, and she decided she is ready to move forward with us. I still am in shock.
As things set in, we will explain more. But for now, we are just overjoyed and are celebrating!! I LOVED seeing peoples reactions. That has meant so much to us.
So, today (with my family) and tomorrow-I get to celebrate my first Mother's Day. In 4 short months, I will be a mom!!
We need to again, say thank you. I have said it before, I will say it again, and our baby will grow up knowing: God is so in control. I have never felt so led by Him, like this, before. This is such an amazing feeling to literally see, plain as day, God's hand at work in my life. It is simply beyond words.
Thanks for celebrating with us!!!
MOM AND DAD!!
