Our birthmom is set to be induced on Tuesday or Wednesday (depending on the dr.'s schedule). As far as we've heard, she is doing well and all is going according to plan. We look forward with great anticipation to meeting this woman who has so much of our love and admiration.
So, in just a few more days time, I'll have lots more info to share and hopefully a few pictures! We cannot thank you all enough for helping us get to this day. Many of you have walked with us for years in prayer and friendship. I have tears of gratitude.
I ask you once again to join us in prayer:
1) for God to prepare our hearts for whatever is next. This adoption is not a done deal and we ask for God's grace to be with us as we walk forward.
2) for health and safety for our birthmom and the baby!
3) for protection and divine guidance as we travel. You never know what you might come across on the road! I love road trips.
4). for my milk to come in!! That's right, my doctor and a lactation consultant have been working with me to induce lactation. And it's working! The doctor has said that it's the #1 thing we could do right now to treat my endometriosis. So, I've been taking medication and herbs and started pumping a few days ago. Please pray for a full milk supply (which is rare but possible for adoptive moms). This is a dream come true for me!
Thank you all so much. We'll be in touch.
