holy shit!

ok um..... the adoption agency called. A Birth mother has chosen us and another couple.



GULP


The baby was born on April 12th, and is bi-racial - East Indian Trinidadian (birth mom) and a Pale Dominican Republic Latino (birth dad). The baby scored a 9 out of 9 on the apgar, and is small, but healthy. Narda and I are going to talk it over on the weekend.

The birth mother chose us and one other couple. If Narda and I say yes, then the birth mom will look at our photo albums, and chose one couple.

It's SCARY and EXCITING to think HOLY CRAP - this could happen in a moment.

I was surprized to realize that I'd have a reaction to the baby's race. I want to be certain that it looks a little black, you know, to honor Narda. How weird am I - it's probably GEORGEOUS, and I should be smacked right now.

I'll keep you posted, just send good vibes our way....

Congrats!!!! I am so excited for you and Narda. 50/50 makes for pretty good odds. Absolutely everything is crossed for you two and that lovely Aries baby.
