We just found out that we are one of three families the birth family is considering as THE family to adopt their baby. The baby has already been born and has some minor special needs, so we know the gender and his age, etc. So I am trying to think of creative ways to announce this to our family. They know NOTHING about this at all. The only thing they know is that it is a dream of mine to adopt. They are not exactly the most supportive about it. So we're not saying anything unless we are the ones chosen. But once they get used to the idea, they'd be happy for us.
We have 3 girls and we want to adopt a boy. He'd only be grandson #2 out of 6 grandchildren for my parents!
This process is going extremely fast, so I am wanting to have an idea just in case we are chosen so I can get it together quickly. We'd have a few days (if I can hold it in that much longer!)
