I kinda left you all with a cliff hanger last week didn’t I??
We left off with the birth parent giving me the surprise of my life… right?
After the birth parent chose us as the adoptive parents, she set up an appointment to find out the sex of the baby. She hadn’t found out before because she didn’t want to know since she didn’t have a family picked out already.
That was such a long week! I didn’t care either way, but I just hate waiting for news like that!
After her doctor appointment, she wanted us on a conference call to tell us the news herself.
She told us that it was a BOY!
I was so shocked and so excited. I had always seen myself having little boys. Not that I would have been disappointed with a girl at all!
After that… that’s when I got the surprise of my life….
She asked me to be in the delivery room with her.
As someone who deals with infertility, I never thought that I would see my children being born. I never thought that I would experience seeing my child come into the world or be the first person to hold him or her.
This brought me to tears and completely humbled me that she would be comfortable for me, a person she doesn’t really know, to be in her delivery room.
Honestly, words can’t describe how excited I was to be there. We were so excited to meet our little boy. That night, we went out and got a few baby boy things!
We knew that we had to everything possible to be there for the delivery… that was a journey in itself!
What would your reaction have been to this??
Stay tuned next week for the final installment of Getting Baby Delight!
