Waiting

I hate waiting. So does the Rev. But we're waiting.

Our birthmom-to-be / adoption partner is 36+ weeks along, effaced and beginning to dilate. So, it's only a matter of time before the child she's carrying (and that we hope and plan to adopt) will make his grand entrance into the world.

The Rev. has her affairs in order (as best as they can be in order) and is ready when the time comes. After my opera gig this weekend, I'll be ready too.

No guarantees. Bad things could still happen, but given the relationship we've cultivated with our PPP (partner pregnant person) over the past 5 months, we're still cautiously optimistic that we will be able to adopt this child. If it doesn't happen, we pick up the pieces and start over again.

And then life will change. The Rev. and I will enter the land of the sleep deprived, and our child's birthmom will gradually move to the sidelines of our lives.

Meanwhile, we wait.

I suppose the bright side to a longer wait is a well done baby...
Suz and I can't wait ... Keep us posted.

Oh, by the way we are going to be an uncle and aunt twice this year. Suzy's brother Chris and his long time girlfriend Ashley just found out a week ago that they are expecting a new member of the family in late October. I guess this means me and Suz need to get on the ball.

This waiting is Killing me.
I have been keeping my fingers crossed and sending tons of prayers your way, hope all is well and the lack of posts mean you are busy taking turns with the nightly feedings.
