I´m typing this from the ¨library¨of the Hacienda Campeche and what is the only thing that could tear me away from the cerveza and pool to sit inside and use a spanish language keyboard to update my blog?
Yesterday was our 10th anniversary and as we were sitting in the Kansas City airport, waiting to fly to Houston and then on to Merida, our social worker called. We were matched with another baby! It happened yesterday and she called us immediately and when J picked up his Blackberry she said ¨Happy Anniversary! Guess what?...¨ and told us that a birthmom chose us. We were thunderstruck, to say the least. We still can´t quite believe this is happening so soon after losing Lucy. The baby is due September 22 and it´s another girl! We don´t have many more details because we won´t get a copy of the homestudy until we get back home next Friday night, but for the record, the birthparents this time are R (birthmom) and G (birthdad). R is 28 and G is 44 and they are not together. We´ll be meeting them in the future, after we get back from Mexico.
Needless to say, this is the best anniversary present on the planet and we can´t stop grinning at each other. I simply can´t believe it. We are certain that the prayers of our family and friends are responsible for this miracle and we ask that you continue to pray for us and for R and G and the new baby (would it be too weird to call her Clio, too?).
I´m off to order a margarita and sit by the pool until dinner. Don´t hate me. :)
