A Step at a Time...

Little Boy Blue's visit today went well... the transporter said he laughed and played the entire time. She also said that the family is coming to terms with the fact that he may not end up with them. They asked whether (if we got to adopt him) we would be willing to communicate with them and maybe allow visits. Alex and I have talked about this at great length.

We are open for discussion of visits, maybe once per year. We would gladly send lots of pictures and welcome any pictures and letters from their end. Everything would have to go through a middle person to protect the privacy of our family and Little Boy Blue. This may sound crazy to some of you.

I'm obviously speaking very prematurely ... just laying it out there in the 'what if' category. A woman can't help but hope, can she?

Doesn't sound crazy at all. We're being asked the same questions about our potential adoption, too.

At this point, I would rather not have to deal with contact with the birth family, but we're trying to cooperate as much as possible with everything.

And of course, everyone tells us that once the adoption is final, it's our call anyway. But still...

Continuing to pray with you. I'm sorry I'm so slow in reading and commenting.
