One more week

We get to bring our baby home next week. It is killing me not having her with us, but only having seen her twice I am so in love! T feels it too, an overwhelming desire to protect her, shelter her, hold her---she is ours.

We will meet the bioparents when we get everything settled in court. Tonight my friend and I went to buy gifts. What do you give someone who is giving you the most precious gift a person could give? Here's your scarf, here's your baby? I could never repay the debt I owe for this wonderful little person I love and adore. I bought two matching stuffed animals, both dressed the same and then I bought a necklace with a charm that is engraved with the initials they gave her. I figured she could wear it if she wants. The animal has it on now. We will take pictures with that every time we take them to send to her. That way she will be looking at the same animal as the baby. We bought a watch for the biodad.....had no idea what to get him, so I hope he likes it. Well, maybe we'll get to see her again next week before the final day!!!!! I can't wait!!

Nothing I could possibly do will repay the GIFT that this girl has given me. The GIFT is not the baby, it is the gift of overwhelming joy. The only thing I can do is to prove to her that I think about her and I wnat her to know she is not forgotten in all this. When i take a picture it will have the animal in it so she looks at the same thing as the child she gave birth to. I did not go into detail about the gift because it is personal....it holds a lot of meaning and sentimentality that I know one day will mean a lot to birthmother and my child.
I come at this from a totally different persective tham most adoptive moms......People that don't know me cannot judge me because they don't know what is in my heart.

kim kim, have you learned nothing from people bullying you and being mean? I am not saying anything wrong. The woman gave birth to a child and she is entrusting to US as the parents. I love her for it and will pray for her and I will parent my child as her mother. She will know she is adopted and how wonderful her biomom is but you are arguing samantics----now back off and don't rain on my parade.

we are absolutely okay....I am not diminishing what she has done at all. I could never do what she is doing --all for the love of her child---she must be stronger than I. It is such a bittersweet experience because I am happy for us and sad for her. She wants to go to college and now she will be able to do that. I know she will never forget her baby. Right now I want to concentrate on being a mommy and I can't let the sadness affect my joy as it affects the baby. She is my little princess. But don't worry, I will not forget the parents. i know their first names and I will pray for them for the rest of our lives that only wonderful things happen for them....they will be updated regularly and pictures will be sent. One day I hope she wants to meet them.

I am so sorry that people have posted negative comments during this dream come true. For the women who have not known the pain of infertility and seem to get pregnant with ease and frequency, never would understand the joy of welcoming a child through some other means. As a birthmother, I rejoice with you! You too deserve to bring love to a childs life. I believe you will raise this child to know that her birthmother loved her as well.
