So after Jerry picked his jaw up off of the floor, we agreed that he should come home. My mind started spinning. We were not even signed up to adopt. How would we get everything done. Most likely we would take this child home in 2-3 days. Is it possible to make this happen? We would need another crib. What will we name him? OMG. Can I even do this? I am already overwhelmed. I do want more kids. I can do it. Can't I? I was all over the map. Jerry says, "you can do it, you are a great mom." I kept thinking, it's just not that simple. We only had about an hour to decide. Really, there wasn't much to decide. This is where he belongs. We just needed to catch our breath. Life was taking another unexpected turn.
We called the agency back and said, "yes, yes, yes, let's do it", where do we start? She told us to get ourselves down to the hospital a.s.a.p. Twelve hours ago, we were snuggling into our bed for the night, ready to start another typical Monday, and now once again, Jerry and I found ourselves in the car, on our way to the hospital discussing names for the baby. This is crazy. We were so nervous. We were going to have to get security clearances, physicals, and figure out how we were going to pay for everything. We still had not recovered from Jacob's adoption costs. But, we only thought about all of that very briefly.....because when all is said and done, there is a baby waiting to meet his mommy and daddy and how we get it done doesn't matter. We couldn't wait to meet him.
