As you might have guessed from the observation that the flow of my posting continued un-interrupted, the adoption that was supposed to happen at the beginning of January fell through.
Fortunately, the agency was able to match us with another birth mom very quickly. We just got the news that she’s been admitted to the hospital to have the baby, and we are in a flurry of packing our suitcases and the car to drive to the city where the agency is.
Serendipitously, it is also the city where my paternal grandfather, who will be turning 100 in a few months and is still hale and hearty and active, lives — and I’m super excited about getting to visit him, too!
So if I don’t manage to post again for weeks or months, well, that’s what happened 😄
