Patience is a Virtue

It is with great joy and excitement that we announce we were recently chosen by a birth mother. We have faith and peace that our baby GIRL will be joining our family very soon. Last Wednesday morning, we received a phone call from our social worker in Florida explaining that our profile had been chosen by another birth mother who’s due date is OCTOBER 7th! The were no risk factors and have full reason to believe that both tummy mummy and baby girl are healthy. We received copies of the ultra sound reports and baby was measuring one week ahead and all measurements were within normal range.

This all seems surreal, we have feelings of excitement and elation as well strong feelings of fear. BUT a wise sister-in-law of mine reminded that we have the ability to choose our thoughts and reactions. So with that piece of advice and with faith in our Heavenly Father we are jumping in with both feet. A lot of PINK has been purchased, our travel bags are packed and we anxiously await THE CALL! Today we are 37 weeks pregnant and can’t wait to meet our precious DAUGHTER!
