Not yet, but I am better

Prayer and your encouraging, soothing words have certainly helped me. I am feeling calmer. I did speak to the lawyer and all is well. Our potential birthmom, K,  is fine and waiting. No plans have changed. She is 3 cm dilated as of yesterday, which most of us know means very little in predicting when baby boy will make his grand entrance. 

I was able to send a message to K that I/we are thinking of and praying for her, and send belated happy birthday wishes. She is mostly concerned that the baby is going to be very big. I think she may be right. As of the day we met her, a little over 2 weeks ago, he was estimated to be a little over 6 and 1/2 lbs., so if he very well could be over 8 lbs. by now. She is only 5'2.:) You never know though. 

Anyway, thank you everyone for checking in with me. It means a lot. I did manage to get to sleep shortly after I posted last night. Then I received 2 phone calls after midnight that I thought must be THE call! Each call was a different close friend checking to see if the baby had come. That set my heart to racing both times. I didn't take the calls since I had just gotten to sleep. (I talked them both today and they understood:)) The point is, I did ultimately get some sleep.

Hopefully sleep will come even easier tonight.

The news you have is good news! See what a little sleep, a lot of praying, and a ton of caring friends does! It helps!

I can't wait for 'the day'. Until then, hang in there! I'll be praying for you!

Your mother's heart is glowing. I cannot wait to read about when you lay eyes on your sweet boy. I'm a foster mother who sometimes is able to adopt. I have 2 I am about to adopt (boy just turned 1 I've had since birth; girl just turned 10 months I've had 4 months). The boy's mom is about to give birth...sometime between now and March and CPS MAY call us for the baby. I find myself INSANE with thoughts of this baby, a baby I may never see. For some reason I have it in my head she is a girl??? You are not crazy. Maybe I'm not crazy either!

I will pray for you every time I think of you tonight and in the days to come if I don't read of his arrival sooner.

Prayers for peace, for a healthy baby and delivery, prayers for his birth mom, prayers for your husband and children and prayers for the adjustment period that is to come.

But most of all, I will pray for peace. That you will rely fully and know that God is there and has a plan!
