Thread: Roller coaster

  1. #1

    Default Roller coaster

    So my life is beginning to remind me of a Lifetime movie! Last I updated y'all the birth mom had changed her mind. The rest of the story isn't on fb, so if you're friends with me there don't mention anything please!

    A few days later I was contacted by someone we know about adopted her baby that's due in January. Apparently she had an affair, got pregnant, and is trying to work in out with her husband. They have 2 kids and he doesn't want to raise another man's child. We talked about it and decided to go with it and see what happens. I sent my lawyer all the info on the birth parents.

    Two days later, our original birth mom starts contacting me. She's not sure she really wants to raise him. We message back and forth a few days and last night she decided she does want us to adopt him. I really hope she doesn't change her mind again, but we'll see.

    We're cautiously excited! I'd love to end up with both kids! Who knows what will happen though!

    So you went from one infant, to no infant, to possibly two infants! That certainly is a roller coaster! I am hoping so badly that both of those adoptions work out for you and you suddenly find yourselves as a family of 5!! Crazy!

    That's fabulous. I hope that it works out for you and for the kids. Good things happen to good people, right? Good luck... I'll be thinking positive thoughts for you!

    (And if you have some tips for getting that same karma/mojo/luck/whatever, please share! We're still some time away from re-entering the foster program, but even if we did that... wow, i never really expected that we'd be so lucky to adopt even one child. I want whatever you're having [in my best harry met sally imitation]!!)

    Found out Tuesday that the birth dad for baby #2 wants to keep him/her. The mother is upset because she says he can't raise a baby. We'll see what happens, but right now we're staying out of it.

    Things look great with Isaac - if he'd quit teasing us and be born, lol! The birth mom posted this yesterday, "I have really reached the point where I no longer want to say 'Chloe's adoptive parents.' Chloe's parents. Chloe's mom. Chloe's dad. Isaac's parents. Isaac's mom. Isaac's dad."

    I'm sorry about Baby #2, cousin 😔

    Eager to meet Isaac though! And yes, he better quit teasing you all! So glad to hear S say those things about you all. It's definitely true.
