The paperwork goes off tomorrow. I was invited into the delivery room for the birth. We have been talking daily.

We are matched.

Baby girl is due on February 28. That is three months away.

Possibly matched

The expectant mom liked our profile. We spoke on the phone last night. We liked her. There is something about her that reminds us of CC. They are both very straight forward and don't hide anything. She invited me to the birth.


There are a few extra risks and chances with this match that we ordinarily might not want to take, but it's kind of feeling like this might be the right match for us.

We really feel we had the right match with Henry's birth parents. If we get that feeling now, we should listen.

I'm surprisingly calm about this right now. No paperwork has been signed yet, but this may in fact be a match.

Showing our profile

We are having our profile shown to some expectant parents. It's a girl due at the end of February.

As with all these situations, there are some complexities to this situation, but we have decided we think the risks are worth it. If we are chosen, we can hopefully resolve a few of the question marks before the baby is born to ensure this is the right situation for us.

I am feeling anxious about it. I will not let myself be excited or hopeful.


As a side note, Henry's behavior has improved enough lately thanks to some therapies, glasses and some suggestions from friends around food, that I have found myself once again hoping a baby would enter into our lives before Henry grows too much older.

Here's to whatever.

Here's Henry on Halloween with his new glasses. In case you wondered, he was a "puzzle bug." (His invention.)
