Well I have to really say thank you to everyone for all the nice comments on my last post. It really makes me feel good to see all of you pulling for us. *Blush*.
We emailed the IAC on Monday and told them we spoke with the birthmom, I'll call her "Lucy". (One note here: I am, and will always be, eternally grateful to her for giving us a gift that will change our lives forever, so I will not give up any details of her life out of respect for her privacy...but you already knew that!) They emailed us today and told us they spoke to Lucy this morning, and she...well I'll just let them tell it:
Just wanted to let you know that I talked to Lucy this morning and she confirmed that she really likes you guys and really feels like you are "the ones"! What that means is we are going to go ahead and match you guys, and from here on out you guys will primarily be working with Sarah as your counselor. She will be getting in touch with you to set up the match meeting and helping you guys through everything until the birth (and beyond, for that matter!). Of course both Lane and I are still available, but Sarah is your primary "match counselor." Please let me know if you have any questions and congratulations!
Take care, Caitlin
We still have to nail down a firm date for the birth of the baby and we're hoping we can do that this week. On a side note we met a couple from the IAC trying to adopt that live in North Phoenix. Today, as proud daddies, they took their newborn daughter home from the hospital. Congrats boys!
