I got an email from M today. It's so nice to have a way to communicate. I think about how easy it will be to share photographs of the baby in the future. For those of you wondering, the email address I gave her is non-identifying. We haven't shared last names or addresses, and the contact info she has is non-identifying. We want to be able to communicate, but not necessarily share everything. She seems pleased that we want to be involved with things before the baby's born, like dr. appts and things. I told her that we're praying for both her and the baby and suggested a few dates when we could meet again before he's born.

I received a voice mail at work today from our social worker - the birthmom, M, has chosen us to parent her baby BOY!!! We are excited and cautious, and anxious, and everything else rolled into one.

The baby is due August 17th - about a week before Daniel's birthday would have been - what a blessing from God to shower that time with happiness for us.

It's going to be a long 4 months!! We'll keep you posted as new developments arise, but this is a GIANT step in the right direction.
