what a difference a day makes!

hi all!

who knew that the very next day (see may 11th post) that my whole world would turn upside down?

eMom gave birth to a healthy 7 lb 12 oz baby boy on wednesday, may 12th @ 10:37a! we met our sweet baby, named samuel (sam), thursday and brought him home friday afternoon. we've been busy ever since :)

at this point, his first/birth mom has 30 days from his birth date to change her mind about the placement. we don't think she will but you never know. until then, we're going to enjoy parenting this sweet little baby!

what about pictures? unfortunately, we're not allowed to post or transmit pictures electronically until the adoption is final, six to ten months from now :(

i'll write either a longer post or two shorter ones with more info soon.

thank you all for your support and well wishes during these last few weeks! i couldn't have made it through without you :)

Congratulations! That was quick!
Enjoy your new baby boy! I am sure that he has taken over your household.

Awww, that is so sad that you can post any pictures. That is a long period of not being able to share your blessings.. Okay is 30 days a rule that is according to your state? My state is 10 days.

Congratulations again!

Thanks Ladies! I'm working on posts about meeting him and bringing him home.

@Eva - congrats to you also. I just read your last post.

@SP - Sam (Sammy) has taken over every open space available but I'm not complaining :) Yes, in PA birth moms have 30 days to change their minds about a placement. Honestly, we know the next 20 days are looming over us but it's only in the back of our minds because we're so busy loving and caring for Sam.

Congratz on brining your son home. I know you are enjoying motherhood already. Will be praying that the next 19 days go by quickly, you have a great attitude about it.
