Yep, that's right, we're parents! A little girl was born early Wednesday morning and her birthmom picked us to be her mom and dad. We met the birthmom, her mom, and our daughter (still getting used to saying/thinking/typing that) on Thursday night, signed a lot of paperwork reiterating that she would soon become our responsibility (yay!), tried to sleep, tied up some things at work, and went to get her Friday afternoon.
We love the birthmom. She and her mom were wonderful, warm people. And the birthmom is smart as a whip. We couldn't have asked for anything more. And of course have no way to express our gratitude for the amazing gift she gave us.
We brought our little girl home last night, with a pit stop at Sonic (she got her first bottle there), and are settling into brand new parenthood. Daddy has the magic touch. He hung out with her early this morning and she slept for 5 hours. Let's just say she was hungry when she got up.
Oh duh, I should post a picture!
