In retrospect last nights post was a little bit of a downer. I thought about removing it.. but as this is not only a blog to update our friends and family, it's also a way for me to chronicle our journey, I'm going to keep it posted. This blog is about being real... and my fears and insecurities are a real part of this adoption process... and looking back on this, I'd love to see where my faith grows and this story takes us!
But for some fun things... all of our diapers are in! We've got our car seat installed, proper laundry soap bought and clothes washed, folded and cleaned! A Welcome Home Baby X party is being planned (X stands for the name we think we've picked out) and all of the must haves have been bought or borrowed! I've almost finished the book On Becoming Baby Wise and found lots of bargains out of Baby Bargains. We're ready!
We've also been able to spend a little bit of extra time with Miss B and her family. Noshing over lunch this weekend provided us all an opprotunity to become more comfortable with one another, share and find common bonds. Obviously we're having an "open" adoption... and I love it! I want this little man of ours to know exactly how much he is loved. That Miss B didn't choose adoption because of a lack of love but because of an over abundance of love. And that every person in his "family" loves and cherrishes him. In this day and age, the more love a child can have the better... and boy is this little boy loved!
Less than a week to go until this little boy makes his appearance in this great big world and while we don't know exactly what to expect our God who knitted him together in the womb knows exactly what's going to happen. And we are so excited for the arrival of Baby LaGorga!
I know, I know... you wanna know the name.... but it's a surprise :)
Love & Blessings, Meredith
