We have an interview with a birthmom!!

Through our agency, the birthmom goes through Lifebooks, and picks the adoptive family. Often, they interview you, so they can meet you face to face. Well we have an interview on Monday! I don't know a ton yet, other due in June. I don't even know her yet, and all I want to do is hug her and love on her and tell her how brave she is.

What is WEIRD....right after we got off the phone with our assistant from the agency, I looked at the calendar, and she is due right around the same time I was headed to the Dominican Republic to shoot a wedding. I have been really worried about that...because I would be devastated if she picked us, and I missed the birth. Literally 5 minutes after praying about it and talking to some friends who were praying, I got an email that the trip was off!!! So, while it stinks because I won't be getting the rest of the income from that, I am so much less stressed out about it and the timing was just WEIRD.

Anyway...those who pray...pray for us and for this birth mom, and that God's will will be done, whether its supposed to be our baby or someone else's.

Congrats! It's an exciting/nervous time for all involved! Remember that she will be just as nervous as you will be.

Congrats! That first contact is nerve wracking!


She will moat likely be super nervous to meet you. Remember that she wants to hear from you and about you, but to also ask her questions too. Get to know her as a person, not just as a woman who may be carrying your future child.

Good luck. It's a crazy journey!

Re: We have an interview with a birthmom!!

One question that really sparked good conversation in both of our match meetings was "What names do you have picked out for baby?" Our first kiddo's bmom said that was the first time anyone asked her that question. I think we (society) sometimes forget that even though mom is planning on placing, she's still going through the same things other moms do. What the perfect nursery would look like, names, what baby will look like, etc. Silly day dreaming stuff that us moms like to do!
