Thanks so much! I am the best person I know at being me! So that is what I will be. Just me! My mind is racing though! What to wear? Should I do my nails and hair? I want to look my best but not look like I'm trying too hard either. First impressions only happen once!

Congratulations Angela (and your hubby)!!!! I have heard that asking more about her life (not focusing on the adoption plan) is a good start.
Being yourselves is the best part!! Good luck!

OMG again!! I just got a call. We are meeting with a birthmom tomorrow night!!!! Our first time!! I'm shaking! All good thoughts appreciated and also any suggestions on what questions I should or shouldn't ask too. This is our first meeting with a BM ever!!! It's been over 10 months since our approval. We are so ready. I'm just going to be myself, and so will my husband and we will let her ask any questions. Because our main priority is that she feel comfortable.

Thanks. Hope is an odd thing sometimes. It is strong, yet delicate. It can get you through or make you sad. Trying to stay in the moment. I have so much to be grateful for.

Savannah & Kara-Jane, Thank you!!! Appreciate it. I'm already saying prayers for the birthmom and will continue to! Am just going on enjoying my life and getting things done!

Good luck Angela! I agree, after so long it's hard to hope only to be disappointed. We too tend to really guard our hearts these days. I hope this one works out for your family.

Just wanted to share that we are being presented to a birthmom early next week. I'm almost nervous to say it aloud. I am going to keep it to myself mostly. Both my husband & I got emotional over this case. Since this is our fourth time being presented and not chosen, I'm feeling detached and in the "just wait and see" sort of feeling. Which is good, I guess. I was so excited the times before. But there is still a feeling in the pit of my stomach that is hard to describe. And who knows what kinds of dreams I'm going to have for the next few nights!! Appreciate any and all kind words and good thoughts. If it's meant to be, it will be! Peace to you all!

I truly understand how hard it is for the birthparents to make an adoption plan but sometimes I feel like they expect us to be perfect parents before they choose us to finish raising their little one. We are one of 2 couples who are still possibilities for adopting 2 little boys. Please pray for us!!
