And Just Like That...

RED ALERT!

Yesterday we got a call from Adoption Connection that there might be a baby for us! It is already born and they wanted to know if it would be ok to give the birth mother our profile. If she chose us, we would have to leave work right away and drive a couple hours to pick the baby up.We had just moved the day before and in fact weren't even living in our new home yet. We were in purgatory sleeping on blankets on the floor of our old house because the new house didn't even have a bed set up yet. All our clothes were in boxes including all the baby stuff we have accumulated and we didn't even have a working phone line, not to mention any internet... So we said, "Sure we'll take it!"but alas, she chose someone else. Phew and Sad Face at the same time. My poor stomach.

what he said!

it's stressful and it's awe inspiring at the same time, everyone should try this!

AFTER we match, preferably...

You know, I've been checking in your site for sometime now. I'm in Chicago and I linked to your site from somewhere else, where I linked from somewhere else, one day, and I just kept checking back. I was so excited reading this--then bummer! Sorry. I just keep hoping the right baby comes along soon. If I were ever to have a baby I needed to give up you guys would be right on top of that list! Best of luck!
