Meeting With C / Birthdayversary

We finally got to have a sit down meeting with C on Sunday to discuss the adoption. She is still definitely wanting to proceed with the adoption. She said she knew the baby would have a better life with us than she would be able to provide him. I told her that I hoped she would want to be part of his life. The Hubs and I said we wouldn't force her to do anything other than what she was comfortable with, but we wanted her to know the option was there if she wanted to see him and be active in his life. She seemed very happy with this route.

Our next move will be contacting our lawyer and getting everything ready to proceed with the adoption! I'm very excited! So much to do and so little time to get it done in, but we're on the way now! I know we'll do what we have to do to get there.

Btw, The Pengu (this is his blog name) was extremely active when we were visiting with C on Sunday! He was kicking fiercely! I got to feel him moving and it was so incredible! C said he wakes up around lunch and then stays active until 3 or 4 in the morning. I told The Hubs we were in for trouble, lol!


Several years ago, The Hubs and I coined the term Birthdayversary for the events coming up in a few days. Sunday is my birthday and Monday is our anniversary, so we began calling it the Birthdayversary Celebration. We don't have any big plans this year, just going out for a meal and then to the cinema to see The Twilight Saga: New Moon (of course I'm going to see it! Adopting doesn't mean I lose my love for Twilight :D). I've been waiting months for this movie to come out (along with every other Twilight fan in the world), so I'm really looking forward to this weekend. The Hubs even says he thinks he'll like it. This one will be more action-packed and, as he says, he's "Team Alice", lol! I just hope it lives up to the book!

Happy blogaverssary :) I hope you have a great weekend. I want to see twiglight too, but I'm nervous of all the crowds and the crazy tweens. Glad the meeting with the birth mom went well ;)

Good to hear things are progressing well with the adoption, i truly hope this all works well for you all, it must be a difficult thing for C but also reassuring she knows you both and how wonderful you are and how loved this baby would be, effectively having 2 families that love him, how blessed that is. Sending you hugs and good luck sweetheart x
