The story of Carolyn

Sweet was a long weekend for your mommy and daddy and big brother.  Your birth mom called at 5:00 on Friday morning to say her water broke.  You were born almost 5 hours later!  9:47 a.m.  7 pounds 10 ounces and 21 1/4 inches long.  We went to grandma and grandpa's house to wait until we could see you.  We visited you in the hospital at about 6:15 that night.  We talked to your birth parents for a long time, and then took some pictures of you and them.

The next day, we didn't get to go back to the hospital to see you.  Your birth family wanted to spend as much time with you as they could before you came home with us.  We did have to sign a lot of papers and came back home, praying everything would work out to go and get you on Sunday.

On Sunday, I went to the hospital to pick you up and bring you home.  Your birth mom and dad were very very brave.  Once they left, I spent some time with the nurses learning about you, and then you and I left the hospital together.

We are taking care of you this month while all of the court papers and proceedings are finalized.  We continue to hope and pray that you will end up being our forever daughter, and we trust God's plan for our family.
