I'm afraid to hope...any advice or words of wisdom? :)
Hi! My hubby & I are currently in the 'waiting' process of adopting. 'Our' baby girl is due in late Jan-early Feb. I'm so very hopeful one moment but almost panicked the next. The beautiful birth mom has 2 other children but only custody of one & doesn't have any way to support her current child, let alone another. She seems pretty confident that her mind is made up. BUT, I know things can change & it's the chance we all open ourselves up to when we choose adoption.
I guess my thought or question is...will she want to keep this child because she has other children...can a birth mom be that confident?...any ideas on how to hang in & hopeful for the next 4 months?....has anyone adopted from a b-mom who has had other children?
Another thought....should we wait to start getting a baby room ready...how did all of you handle this uncertainty? ....baby shower in a couple of months...is this silly to do before birth?
Thank you so much for any ideas or advice you might have! I'm so thankful to have found a forum like this.
