Caller: Cindy, this is Kay, your Social Worker from Holy Family Adoption.
Cindy: Hi Kay. How are you?
Kay: Well, I'm fine. I'm calling to tell you that we have a four week old baby boy for you. When would you like to pick him up?
Well, I can' t remember what I said after that. It's all a blur.
This was truly the most exciting phone call of my life. Needless to say, the next two days were filled with preparations, a lot of phone calls, and an enormous amount of shopping. We had nothing prepared before that phone call. We hadn't even realized that a Birth Mother was considering us as prospective parents.
We are so grateful to John's Birth Mom. She gave us the greatest gift, and we thank God every day for him, and for her decision.
Monday, March 2nd, is "Adoption Day". I will post pictures of the day we brought our beautiful boy home and of our annual Adoption Day dinner. The three of us go out to dinner every year on March 2nd to celebrate the day that we became a family.
