So Narda and I are entering into a VERY busy and stressful time at work.
I have auditions, Narda is off to Seattle to work on August Wilson’s Radio Golf
We jokingly said to Nicole that “of course, we’ll get the call at the WORST possible time for us – which would be mid-January.”
So guess who I just got a call from?
VERY healthy birthmom, 17 years old, adopted herself, from Colombia. Birthfather is 18, White. ALSO adopted. They are both Catholic, but the birth mom is a member of the gay/straight alliance at her school. HER parents are very supportive of her adoption plan. She’s had excellent pre-natal care, no drug or alcohol history, and is also in therapy. She wants an open adoption. So do we. She lives in NJ, so there’s that glorious 3 day thing – once she signs, there’s no “30 day waiting period.” LOVE THAT.
And, here’s everything that could muck it all up:
-She could choose to parent
-She could go into labor early
-She could choose another family.
Our fantasy situation? She picks us. Goes into labor LATE – like February 15th.
THAT would be perfect.
