So sorry to keep everyone in suspense, but this is my first opportunity to be at a computer. Without further ado, we are indeed matched!
So here's how it went down . . .
Yesterday at 4:30 we met the parents, our social worker, and the owner of the agency at a local restaurant. At first we all were pretty nervous, even though B likes to say that he was absolutely fine. After a couple of minutes it was just like having dinner with friends. We all really hit it off. We consider ourselves to very blessed to have been chosen by this couple. They are mature beyond their years, compassionate, genuine, well spoken, and we absolutely love them. An hour and fifteen minutes we were on our way out, fully matched, with ear-to-ear grins.
So now we wait, and pray that the baby remains healthy and that she can make it to 36 weeks. She is at 32 right now, but experiencing contractions that medication isn't really helping.
Stick around, it should be a fun ride!
(Oh, and you may have noticed that I have started to make a few changes around here in order to make the real me a little less "google-able".)
