I talked to someone from the community the other day about birth mom #3 and how much I wanted a baby. She told me to keep asking because once the birth mom knows I will care for the baby well she will probably meet with me and talk. So today I decided to send her a letter telling her how much I want a baby and that I'm hoping she will place with me. Well at the store I heard my name, turned and thought it was her but wasn't sure. So I finished what I was doing and ran back into the car. I didn't want to talk to her in the store about the baby and I didn't want to try to figure out if it was her or not either.
After I got home she CALLED!!! YAY!!! We has a good talk for ten minutes. She asked me about myself, my family, my plans for with baby. She was happy that she would get pictures and letters. I asked her when she is due but she isn't sure because she has been told different things by different doctors. She is due in either April or May. I'm hoping April because the sooner the better lol. She had been talking to her boyfriend about it too, they both want to meet with me. I'm going to print off my "Dear Birth Mother" letter and give it to them as well as my photos from my profile.
I emailed my agency worker to see what needs to be done next if she decides to place. I'm curious how the details meeting will work since I will know more details than the agency and I will have already met both birth parents. I'm excited that the birth father is involved because it means a much easier legal process. Hopefully cheaper too! Since they have kids together already this isn't their first. Their other kids are in care though and I'm hoping that they will see that I'm a much better home for them than a foster home. Anyway, meeting with them hopefully this week and will be able to get an official "yes" from them. Fingers crossed it goes smoothly and the process can get started!!
