We were notified yesterday that there is a birth mom/birth dad that are due in July that want to give the baby girl up for adoption. Both parents have some mental issues and know that they cannot care for the child. We have sent off all our information as well as a couple family pictures and now we wait.....and wait....and wait.....I'm sure there are some of you out there who know exactly what I am feeling right now. I'm trying to not get too excited because, heck, we've been down this road before just not with an infant and I do know that there were many families interested in this child but how do you not get excited at least a little bit???? The paperwork states that the family wants a semi-open adoption. Well in our state I know you can't list any "promises" to the birth parents on the paperwork but for those of you out there, what kind of open adoptions have you done and how do they work for you? To what extent are your adoption "open".
Please keep us in your prayers that things go our way. I'll keep you posted as I know more and I would LOVE to hear your thoughts.
