  • This afternoon at 2pm DP got a call at work from our social worker who said they have a 5 1/2 week old baby girl in foster care that needs to be placed into an adoptive home IMMEDIATELY and "were we interested?"
    DP called me right away and we were both just in complete tears saying "yes, yes, yes we want her"
    We called our SW back immediately and told her we want her. At 5:30 pm tonight they placed our perfect new daughter into our arms. Her name is yet to be determined (we're taking suggestions LOL!). Hopefully, we can pick one of our girl names tonight.

    DP and I are both still in major shock. The birth mother has already said that she wants her to be adopted, has not appeared in any court dates and the SW said there is slim to no chance of her ever going back to the birth mom. In fact, the mom left the hospital against medical advice, left the baby (un-named!) and that was that.

    I'll post more later, I can barely keep my eyes off of her, so looking at this computer is un-bearable right now.

    Thank you for all the support you have given to me on this board. We will continue with our DI IVF procedures, but our plans may change a little bit. DP may just be doing an FET or we may choose to do another fresh cycle in the spring. For right now we just want to enjoy our little one.
