We have been talking with a family for nearly a month about becoming adoptive parents of identical boys. They are due February 22, 2011, which makes them 23 weeks gestation today. This morning we were told that we are going forward with adoption proceedings. What a rush! The excitement and the fear. Law states that they will not be ours until all papers are signed, and papers cannot be signed until the babies are at least 72 hours old.
We are going to continue to leave this in God's hands, as we have since we first heard about the opportunity, but we will be posting more often, and also adding some countdowns here.
