Well we talked to a birth mother that called the agency yesterday and she is 8 months pregnant (due Next MONTH!). She is fully insured, wants nothing, she is 29, has 2 daughters (they are both very pretty) the father up and left her a few months back and she has been thinking about what to do, 3 family friends offered to adopt the baby and all 3 fell through. She kept saying to us she just wants to know it's going to a good safe home. She said when she called the agency told them her story, they asked her some questions and then sent her a packet with 50 birthmom letters in it. she said first she looked at the pictures of all 50 letters. then she read bits of most. she narrowed it down to 3 and we were one of those 3. She said she thought about it some more and she knew after reading our letter and seeing out website again that we were the ones. She told her whole family and said she was worried about them not approving the "gay" thing and wanted to know if she should choose one of the other couples but they all said NO, your first instinct was right, stick with that. Then she had her 7 yr old look at the pictures (she has explained the whole thing to her already) look at the pictures and asked her, do you think they will be good daddies for the baby, she said yes, then she said the 7 yr old read our whole letter and said YES they are perfect for the baby. We thought that was perfect, it sealed the whole thing.
We are so excited, we cannot believe this is happening. It is so wonderful. The mother is so worried that she does not want to change her mind she does not want to hold the baby afterwards, she wants it to go straight to us and if possible no contact afterwards. I kinda did not like that, I want her to KNOW her sisters, to see them and be part of their lives, so does Bobby, we also wanted more to send her pictures of the baby as it grows and so on, she says no. So we will wait and see.
I cannot wait to be a Father. Now we just have to get to number 2. We have not had a long wait, we went on the books with our agency just 3 weeks ago. they told us we were very popular and a lot of inquiries were asked about us. So we hope the second time around its the same. I am planning on when the baby is 8 months old starting this again.
