News on the adoption front


I just got of the phone with our adoption agency. My heart is beating non stop.

I called them since a woman that I know knew about some crisis pregancies and wanted information to distribute to these women to prevent them from aborting.

The person I was looking for was off today and by chance I ended up speaking with the head of adoptions who is truly a remarkable woman and she offered to help me in getting some info for these women.

She also faced IF and adopted 2 babies only to become pregnant three more times, she now heads the efforts in this agency to make adoption happen and is now overseeing the fate of 24 babies who are currently under their care! Mostly healthy newborns, but some very hard cases also with brain damage, down syndrome or blindness.

She works mornings doing miracles with limited resources and in the afternoons is a full time mother of 5! She is a member of the Neo-Catech.umenal way and very very active in this also. I have no idea how she does this.

Well she told me that the all important meeting had moved to the 15th, yet continue to pray to St Anthony and

to come by the agency June 16th very early in the morning to have news.

She wanted to give them personally to my DH and I.

She said nothing else!!!! argghhh!!!!!!!!!!

In this meeting they will let us know if we are approved or not and if yes and it might be that they even tell us if there is a baby for us!!!

Its all up in the air.

How will I survive the next days? I have no idea!!!

So in this meeting 3 things can happpen from what I have seen since I have known this agency:

You are not approved, please go to therapy for X amount of time and come back then. This is still a possibility.
You are approved and wait until we call you. More waiting and it can be days, weeks or months!
You are approved and your baby is waiting for you! Come pick her or him up by X time, normally the next day! In 2 cases they even told them here is your baby right then and there and go home with him/ her!!!

St Anthony please pray for us!
Sacred Heart of Jesus! Please help us!!
