Alice Jane Malo
There are NO WORDS to describe the way I am feeling now. Happy. Excited. Terrified. All of the feelings!!!! There are little tiny onesies, socks, and blankets in my washing machine right now. There are clean baby bottles in my kitchen. There is a packed baby bag on my counter. This is happening!!!!!!
Here is how it all went down:
We got a phone call from Brandon Family Law Center Thursday evening asking if our book could be shown to a woman who gave birth on Monday. We, of course, said yes. The adoption coordinator, Alyce, met with the woman yesterday at 4:00. We got THIS PICTURE texted to us at 5:39 saying it was the first picture of our daughter! We talked to Alyce, got some details, and then preceded lose our minds! That was followed by a run to Melissa's to get all the things and a Target run to buy out the store =)
EVERYTHING that EVERYONE said was right. THIS is meant to be. The failed matches failed for a reason. This is our perfect, beautiful, baby girl. She is OURS. We are parents. I am a mom. My life is changed completely.
We were BLOWN AWAY by all of the texts, phone calls, facebook posts, and everything else last night. We have the best friends. We have the best family. I can't wait for you all to meet our girl. I can't wait for US to meet our girl!!!!!
Until Next Time,
