We spent 5 days in the nursery where we watched her wean off the IV machine, eat more, wake up and work out all the extra fluid in her lungs.
Our birthmothers mom told me it was calm at their house that morning and that she was at peace.
I felt guilt, but joy.
I was just a ball of all sorts of emotions.
This was the plan all along.

We are not new to adoption, but, texting with a birthmom was new to us.
We were both so tired but glad all the things got done that day.
"I want you to know, this is JUST as exciting as going into labor personally".
I was excited.

We have been waiting a long time for little miss Andie to join our family.
He is now 3 1/2 years old.
....and she said yes.
April 3, 2015 we met up in Utah at the restaurant of her choice.
She brought a childhood friend to make things easier on her end.
She shook hands and hugged and sat down and all took a deep breath.
Within 5 minutes of visiting she told us that she was having a girl and showed us ultrasound pictures.
But that was the extent of baby talk.
We went on to talking about work, our hobbies, our lives and had an easy conversation.
It was getting late and the night would be coming to close and we hadn't really talked about "adoption."
So I just flat out started asking questions about her situation.
We learned that she got pregnant when we were doing our homestudy, we learned that she signed up as a birthmom through the agency when we were having our consultation with them also.
The day Romney was driving to deposit the money was the day a couple she was talking with originally wasn't a good fit and that she was so frustrated.
So on that frustrating day, she was presented "us" as a couple that would be signing up later in the day.
"The stars had aligned" for us to find each other and it was awesome to see it all unfolding right there!
We hugged goodbye and we went our separate ways.
We wondered what she thought of us.
Saturday April 4, 2015 the agency called us and said
"SHE PICKED YOU".
We had a baby girl coming in 20 weeks!!!
