I want to give an update about our adoption since I haven't written about it yet. On Monday, August 23rd we received a phone call from Michelle at Adoption Answer. She called to tell us that a birth mom was presented with our profile and she chose us to adopt her baby. When that phone rang at 9:30 in the morning and Todd said "hello Michelle" my heart dropped. I was excited because I knew what the call was for. She gave us background information on the birth mom and after a tearful conversation with Todd we decided to pass on this situation. I have to say I was not anticipating this situation and all the emotions involved. Part of me just wants a baby so bad that I will say yes to any situation and the other part of me wants to be as sensible as possible. I believe we made the right choice but I have a little guilt because I want the birth mom and her baby to be in a safe environment and well taken care of. I never thought we would say no to a birth mom and I hope our choice didn't hurt her too badly.
We have only been waiting for a couple months to be matched with the right birth mom but it feels like an eternity. I guess I had this fairy tale situation in my head that our match would happen immediately. I have good days and bad. Some days I'm really positive and feel that the call will come soon and other days I feel it is never going to happen. As you know I am a faith filled person but I need your prayers to help me get through this time of waiting. Thank you for your support.
