Christmas Hearing

Our first hearing is scheduled for Christmas day. So less than a week from now Hayden's birthmother will have to go to court to express her desire for adoption. This is what starts our court process, and then we will hope that we hear nothing. No news is good news under these circumstances. I am sure this will be a very difficult day for her, and I will be hoping that she can find some peace and comfort in her decision. I think she wants a better life for her daughter, and we will do everything to provide that for her. But it will never leave my mind and heart that this women is giving me the most valuable gift ever, and I will never be able to thank her in a way that will suffice, other than to give her baby girl the life that she hopes for her to have.

As we say, crossing those crossables that all goes well with court.

The mother thing is a hard one to fully digest. I find that it happens instages for me.

You will be in my thoughts that day my friend. I know that Hayden's BM will do the right thing. Hayden is going to have a wonderful life, with you guys as her parents, and of course with Paige as her NY friend.

Hi Jules,

Our Hearing takes (or took) place on the 23rd. I'm guessing they are giving us actual Taiwan time, in which case it already happened. Anyway, I'm right there with you in the anticipation, and I will be thinking of you and your Hearing on Christmas Day!

Hi, J- Been meaning to ask you about the photo in this post. It's so beautiful and I have seen it somewhere. Maybe in a book? I just can't remember but would love to get my hands on one if you know where! Thanks!

Happy, happy New Year!
