My husband and I are adopting a newborn. (YEY!!!) I get to be in the delivery room and at the birth mothers request I will be the first to hold the baby. I would love to hear all of your adoption stories, esp the ones where you adopted a newborn at the hospital. I am excited to hear how it worked out for you.

Thank you!! Would you mind me asking did the adoptive parents do anything special for you? What is the most helpful kind thing an adoptive Mom do for the birth mom?
