This morning we received a call from our caseworker. We have been chosen by a birthmother. I am so excited and happy and a little nervous too. I am especially grateful; I know that most people looking to adopt wait months if not years. We have been officially approved for only a few weeks. We are expecting a little boy with an estimated arrival of June 15.
I have spent today going through the baby clothes, looking at baby names, talking to Tyler, and just thinking about how things will change. Also, I feel so out of practice, will I remember how to parent a newborn? What was the eating and sleeping schedule that we followed with Tyler? How do you dress a newborn in the middle of summer? Can I spread my love across two children? Are we ready? I think so. In fact, we can't wait.
