5th time's a charm?

So our SW calls this am, and informs us that Birth Mother #5 has selected us (and also told us that if this one doens't work, that there's another one that's interested). She (SW) said we're popular, and I jokingly said something about never making it past the semi-finals... She did try to reassure us that it WILL happen, which we know it will, but we're just so eager to be parents.

So the situation is, once again, perfect - VERY healthy, smart, intelligent Birth mother, NO drugs or alcohol, and she already has two children. The biggest risk is in her own desire to parent, so even if we do get chosen, we will need to wait until after she gives birth (due on September 1st) and then makes her decision. She is currently very adamant about giving this child up for adoption, but right now is not September 1st.

Baby boy. African American mom, and African American / Hispanic dad - again, gorgeous!

So send some good "pick us" vibes, and whatever other ju-ju you can, we need it, as the Birth Mother picked us, 2 other couples, and a single mom. So now, she looks at our photo album.

Thanks internet, you rock!

Pick S & N!!! Pick S & N!!! They'll be fantastic mamas! He sounds great, Shelli. Lots o' luck!

BTW - Thanks for posting on my little whininess last week - I feel like such a brat, when there are people like you two, and Jenny & Sarah, and heck, everyone who's been trying longer than me that's still waiting for that baby to show up.
