When you've been an expectant mother for over eight years, one tends to get a bit over excited at the thought of actually holding and loving a newborn baby and calling it our own.
We need to do a lot more work on our profile. We need to complete a home study. We need to hire an attorney. It's just all a lot more involved than we originally thought.
When the home study is complete, THEN our profile can go in the pile the birth mother picks from. We also found out the hospital in California only has 3–4 babies available for adoption per year. So we will be looking in additional places.
So we aren't expecting a newborn baby tomorrow or next week. But we are still expecting.
