Thread: Matched!!!!!!

  1. #1

    Talking Matched!!!!!!

    We're MATCHED!!!!! We got a call last week and were told that we had been chosen by a young birthmother that's due April 3rd! For those of you who know our story this is the exact timeline we had last year when our adoption failed. (We were called end of Feb/beginning of March and the baby was due April 5th.) We were just starting to prepare ourselves for feeling sad for our loss since he's going to be a year old soon and now we're feeling both sad for the baby we lost and thrilled for the little bundle we'll be brining home! I let our SW know my fears and she said things sound really good (although there's always some risk) and that they won't let her go past 39 weeks so that puts us at March 27th or sooner!!! We're beyond excited! Josy's been asking for the past month when her baby sister is going to get here and now I'll actually be able to tell her that she'll have a baby sister pretty soon! It's funny how life works...we had just gotten done with our PRIDE training and were starting to think that maybe we were meant to go the foster/adopt route and BAM phone rings. (we may still go that direction after a while) We're heading out on a family vacation on the 5th with Dh's family, get back on the 12th, meet our BM on the 15th then keep counting down!!! Please pray for a good outcome after last year i'm nervous.

    Thanks!
    Jess

    Thanks! We got a letter from her on Monday and we get to meet her next Friday. We're so excited but nervous too. The thought of losing another little one due to a disrupted adoption scares me. (Positive thoughts!) I know that there is always risk but after last year we know all too well how much it hurts. The wait has been long and bumpy so having a short wait after being matched is a relief. I'll let you know how our meeting goes. Just trying to relax in sunny florida this week then we hit the ground running when we get home. Thank you for all your kind words...fingers crossed things will go perfectly!

    Our meeting had to be rescheduled due to bad weather (roads) and our basement flooding! Sounds like our bm's mom was concerned about us all traveling (3 hr drive) with the weather we were having which worked out since we were fighting water on Thurs/Fri. We hadn't put in our sump pump yet and learned our lesson. SO our meeting is now going to be this coming Friday, the 23rd...even though DH feels that baby girl will show up on the 20th. We know they aren't going to let her go past 39weeks so that puts us at the 27thish for inducing! She went to the hospital the other night because she thought she was in labor but it was a false alarm. Any day now!!! Keep praying!!!
