We're matched!! .... or are we??
So on April 5th I got the best phone call of my life when my social worker called to say we had been picked and the baby was due 4/18. They didn’t expect him to make it to his due date so they told us to prepare, pack and be ready to go….
The BM had an appointment on the 10th and she called to say she was 2cm and all was well and that she’d meet us at the hospital. Our agency suggested we write her a card, which we gladly did. Her next appointment was 4/17 and they were going to talk about inducing her at this point.
4/17 came and went…I got a call the next morning saying she hadn’t checked in. Thursday came around and my social worker said her mom had checked in and said ‘as far as she knew’ the plan was still in place and she just hasn’t felt like talking to anyone. We found out she’s being induced TOMORROW…..and I’ve heard NOTHING since :(
She never was quite clear about ‘when’ she’d meet us at the hospital and our agency kept telling us as they knew things, they’d tell us. Honestly, at this point, it hasn’t been too much other than we were chosen and pack your bags.
So here we are…bags packed, bottles sterilized, car set strapped in and 2 VERY nervous and anxious HOPEFUL parents to be and we’re like 2 sitting ducks!!
I’ve emailed my social worker. I dont want to be a pain becuase I would HOPE they’d call me if they knew anything but I’m seriously jumping out of my skin right now!!!
