Baby Girl

Oh my goodness!!! I am shaking right now. The adoption agency just called us with a situation that were considering and now have accepted and will be shown to the birth mom in the morning. A girl, born May 11, at 26-28 weeks. Birth weight was 1 lb, 7 oz as of Friday, she was up to 3 lbs. She has been on and off the venitlator and the doctors are now trying to wean her off of it. So far, she has had no brain bleeds and is keeping her temperature up. One thing they warned us about is that preemies often have chronic lung issues. They are also monitering her eyes, right now she is at stage 1, zone 2. I googled that, and right now that doesn't look to be too bad, but they are still monitering her. We are only being considered at the point, no garuntee we will be chosen, but I think we are on a short list. Either way, please keep this little girl in your prayers, that she will go to the family that will be the best match for her.

Thanks ladies! I know that the perfect baby is out there for us somewhere. But that does not stop me from carrying my phone with me everywhere, I have to keep running back in to rooms, because I think I hear the phone ring... lol! Either way, I am guessing, that the finalist will be contacted tomorrow. But what I really think is going to happen is that she will go to a family that doesn't have any other children, I think the birth parents are going to take in to consideration that she is a preemie and does have special needs right now and will probably want all the attention going to Baby Girl.

Just got a call from the adoption agency. Baby Girl's birth parents chose a family from Connecticut. Now, hopefully I can relax a little. The stress of waiting is just killing me, not just with this particular situation, but waiting for the call in general,

I really hope you get a baby soon. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you, but I hope the family in Connecticut takes good care of her.
