Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (AKA "Are We Matched?")

We've had a tad bit of excitement over the past 18 hours or so. Our agency called yesterday to see if we wanted them to present us to a pregnant couple last night. Of course we did! Last night while I was at my Resolve support group meeting (even discussing said presentation) B got the call from our agency. The couple picked us and they want to meet us tomorrow evening. I don't want to share too many details here quite yet, however, time is of the essence because mom is 32 weeks pregnant now. The baby is healthy (and yes, we know the gender). We are extremely hopeful (though trying to remain grounded and guarded) because the entire situation appears to be our absolutely best case scenario.

Please say a little prayer for us, the baby, and the parents as we begin this wild ride.

  32. grounded and guarded. good words.that is exactly how I feel when we get a call that there might be a kidney available for our son, so far they always fall threw. A kidney is not a baby but I am feeling the same feelings you are. I hope thats not offensive.
