Life changing phone call

My friend just got a life changing phone call. She has an adopted 14 month old and was called by her social worker today. Apparently the biological mom of her little one just had another baby yesterday and wants them to take the new one! They had already given away all their newborn stuff and had no plans for this. Yet in a matter of hours, they have opened up their family to this baby. Papers are signed...bonds are forming...Her husband is at the hospital ... and she is calling all her mommy friends to help her stash up for the new baby! WOW! What a life changing phone call! I guess that's how it is with adoption...the phone rings and your world is a new place afterward. It is just even more shocking when you had no expectation of it happening. They had not even known she was expecting again! How wonderful that the two little ones will be family forever.

Wow, that is really cool! Very chaotic getting things ready to bring an unexpected baby home, I'm sure, but that's great that they have opened their hearts and family to add another LO!

That's amazing.I knew a girl who had a baby and gave it up for adoption and her sister had one and the same couple adopted both.

Wow! Thats wonderful!

I've heard that the best way to end up with a new baby is to give away your baby stuff...guess it's true!
