I called Birth Mama V on the phone today. You know, her CELL phone. (Insert the sound of my thumping heart right here!) But it was GREAT.
And we're going to see her on Sunday morning, July 1st. It will be our first meeting NOT at the agency - we're just going to meet midtown and, you know, HANG OUT.
We're SO excited and blessed to have this relationship with her. It's SO important to us as a family that Malka not only know of, but actually KNOW her birthmom. And I could tell the excitement in V's voice as well. So it's good all around.
And now... we are in the process of composing a letter to our agency, letting them know that we want to go back "into pool" in March. I hope that the paper trail is shorter this time around, but I fear not - so we want a good head start on everything. Oh, and March has nothing to do with "spacing," as we know it could take a week, or a year, or more, even. But more with the fact that Narda's Bat Mitzvah is February 23rd, and she needs the time between now and then to prepare. And, add in the fact that as a Shul administrator, we are less than 3 months away from the High Holy Days, so my life is about to get very, very busy.
So, um, yeah - I had a fleeting thought about TTC again, but then realized that not only is focusing on me right now (ie: weight loss, Lexapro) much more important, but adopting is really, and truly such a beautiful experience, that we can't wait to do it again.
