First of all, I want to thank everyone for your tremendous outpouring of support and excitement for us as we start this new journey. We are so blessed to have so many friends and family that love us and are rooting for us! We appreciate the encouragement and love, but most of all, we appreciate your prayers for our sweet baby and for our birthmom.
You heard me right- our birthmom.
We have a birthmom that has chosen us to parent her baby!
And at least for now, that is all that we are choosing to share.
The specifics of who she is and why she is choosing to place her child for adoption... that is not our story to tell. It is our child's story and we want to protect that.
We also need to guard our hearts. I refuse to live in fear, but I do have to recognize the increased chance that we have of not bringing this child home.
There is a part of me that wants to share more, but I have to listen to the wisdom of others that have more experience in this than me and trust that is not the right decision at this time.
But, I can tell you this. Rusty and I are deeply, head-over-heels, crazy, madly in love with this baby already.
