**Update- Forgot to say that this is in addition to our that is at the agency. They started internet advertising to help speed up the process with the decline in birthmothers.


So I have heard of people taking trips before their baby is due and calling it a "babymoon". Greg and I just returned from a cruise with our friends that we met at the adoption class. Seven days of bliss in the Caribbean! Can it get any better? I thought this trip would be our Babymoon, but it doesn't look like it was. Greg will be leaving in less than eight weeks for a six month deployment to Afghanistan. I have written to our agency and asked if they could not present us to birthmothers due while he is away. It's a tough decision to make, but we have been in this together since Day 1 and we both want to be together when we finally become a family. Luckily, with adoption we have a little bit of control over that. I'm hoping for another Babymoon in January 2010 when he returns home!

the fourth of april

Our conference was a success! The day went as smooth as it possible could and we got great reviews from our Headquarters representative! A few couples came up and personally thanked either me or Jenn and told us how much they needed what they experienced Saturday. I know all our hard work helped those that were there that day and in the end, that is what I wanted.

Personally, I was doing great all day until Jenn texted me late that night to tell me she had been thinking of my due date all day and that my angel would be proud of me. I lost it! It was the first time that day that I let myself think of our baby. And then I thought of Jenn's babies. Saturday was a gorgeous sunny day here. I know our little ones were shining down on us. If it weren't for the babies we have both lost, we would not know each other and we would never have done what we accomplished this weekend!
