Don't know what to think

Well, with the military being so accommodating (not joking), it looks as if she will be keeping the baby.  She's cut off all communication with us, but is still talking to her parents.  They tell us a little, but I know its hard for them to be between their friends and their daughter.

I love her and I understand her desire to keep this baby, but I wish that she hadn't asked us to adopt this one before exploring all of her options.  A part of me is just so down, even though her parents think that there may still be a tiny sliver of a chance that she might place.

We're just continuing to move forward finishing our adoption paperwork and putting faith in the scripture that says that "all things will work together for your good".

Hope all is well with the rest of you!

No news

Nothing really to report.  As per usual, we aren't hearing much from our birthmom, and when we do hear from her, she hasn't mentioned anything about the baby.  We honestly don't know if this is good or bad.

We sent off another email to our caseworker yesterday asking her for some updates, so we'll probably hear back from her in the next week.

We also came across another potential issue: The Sailors and Soldiers Act.  The birthfather is on inactive duty in the military and that requires us to follow some additional rules... Still checking on all of that with LDS Family lawyers.

I'll let you know more when I do.

Thanks for all of the prayers!
