New Hope

This morning we received an e-mail from our adoption agency about an expectant mother who is due in April. It was a mass e-mail sent out to everyone, so it was a little different than the times the agency has called us specifically about a situation.

It took a couple hours of e-mails back and forth between Adam and I before I convinced him to let me call for more information. There were a few risks involved that made Adam nervous. Sometimes I think seeing them all listed together in one e-mail can be more overwhelming to him.

I called for more information about the new case, but first they said they had an update about the Indiana case we were being profiled for. I think it's safe to say we are never going to hear an answer about that one. The expectant mother seems to have disappeared. It was obviously a big disappointment...

BUT, I had a great conversation with our family advocate about the new case. After talking about it for a long time, I let her know we want to be profiled.

The more and more I think about this situation, the more I think it's a really good fit for us.

I have been happy about it all afternoon.

The expectant mother will be looking at our profile next week.
Until then I will be here with my fingers and toes crossed hoping, hoping, hoping she picks us!


  1. I am praying for you and Adam to get your baby <3 I am getting excited and hopeful for y'all!

  2. Keeping everything I have crossed for you guys! I so excited and hopeful that you will have your baby soon!

  3. I hope everything works out with this case. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  4. Sorry the other one didn't work out, but you sound so much more positive in this post than you have in awhile! Glad things are moving along!

  5. That sounds like an exciting new connection for you guys! Hoping and praying everything works out!

  6. Oh, Lisa! I hope this is your baby. I'm glad you learned of a new opportunity as you got an update about Indiana. We had similar experiences with the Indy cases.

  7. Wanted to wish you luck.
    Our adoption situation was interesting. We took a hard to place baby that was an at risk situation.
    But when you know, you know.
    Also our son's first mother chose us after three other couples she had chosen backed out after further review of her situation.
