Here's the news you have been waiting for... We've been matched! We are over the moon with happiness! Our baby girl is due June 5th!
My sister's coworker, who has read my blog, knew of a teen wanting to make an adoption plan for her baby. She put us in touch; (thank you so much, J). The absolute coolest thing is the expectant mom is from our hometown and our daughter will be from where we are from. Marlon and I went down to Virginia and met her and her family. We thought they were great. The lunch went great. Everything is great. Can you tell I am excited? I think both parties felt it was meant to be. We were all smiles and hugs by the end of the lunch. I really feel like it is a start of a beautiful bond between our families.
So there you have it, we are going to be mom and dad in June! I can hardly believe it. I can't decide what I need to do first. Anyone that knows me, knows that is plenty of time for me to get ready. I am already ready in my heart.
UPDATE: Our match failed. We are heart broken, but we are dusting ourselves off and getting back on the rollercoaster. Read about it here: http://twocatsandacradle.blogspot.com/2013/03/were-down-but-not-out.html
