Dang, that’s a LOT of crap in our storage unit! (and it’s STILL half full!), originally uploaded by shellipsm.
So the reason Malka was “helping me” clean out our storage unit was so that I could get to the stuff in the back. Malka’s old stuff.
Today, the birth mother signed surrender documents. The agency is sending a letter of notice to the birth father, but the birth mother’s social worker already has confirmation of a conversation where by he “wants nothing to do with it.”
We pray that in G-d willing, the days and years to come, that in fact, he might.
We are SO grateful to this birth mother, whom we will continue to have an open relationship with, just as we do with Malka’s birth mom. We are truly blessed.
G-d willing, keinihora, knock wood, spit, spit, etc., we will have placement of a healthy baby boy, who was born on November 26th, 2008, on Wednesday, February 4th, 2009. He will be exactly 10 weeks old.
We have not seen him yet, but we did finally tell Malka. She seems keen on the idea, but goodness knows. We do not know how much he weighs, how long he is, or what have you, but I’ve texted our social worker, just so that I can know which clothes to wash. I have the 3-6 and the 6+ in two piles, so that ultimately? One can be washed…
I don’t feel as much “evil eye” about bringing stuff up from the storage unit, as it was Malka’s, and you know, we’re bringing it up for her dollies, right?
We’ll keep you all posted, but think good thoughts next Wednesday at 1:00pm. If all goes well, we’ll share his name 8 days later, on Feb. 11th. The “30 day wait” (the birth mother has 30 days to change her mind after signing surrender documents) will end on February 27th.
