Hey everybody!!! Remember me? :):):)

  1. Hi,

    It's been quite some time that I have posted on these boards. I have been a very busy momma! Some of you may remember that I was adopting a baby girl due in December. Well, she is FOUR months old now! She is an absolute angel...my happy, smiley, blue eyed, blonde haired baby girl....She fits perfectly into our family. My heart and soul feel complete now.

    My son is exactly six years older than her. She was born December 12th. He turned 6 on December 15th. He LOVES her to death! It has been a great experience. We are actually waiting on her adoption finalization toward the end of this month.

    We don't hear from the birth family anymore. But they know how to find us (her) and vice versa. Life is just rolling along now. I can honestly say I can't tell the difference between a biological child and an adopted one. The love I feel for both of my babies is tremendous.

    Anyhow, pictures will soon follow. I will keep in touch. Thanks for all the well wishes from all who followed my story from the beginning.

    Much love

    Julie, Justin & baby Sarah

    OH welcome back. I was wondering how it all went for you. I am happy for you and your (enlarged) family. I would love to adopt, but fearful as hell of losing the baby at the very end. I am happy things worked out for you. Welcome back.

    Hi

    Thanks for the warm welcome. Do not let fear of the unknown stop you from adopting. OMG! Their are too many babies in the state of California alone that need loving homes....but that's a different story altogether!

    If you want, email me privately, I will be more than happy to give you our facillitator's information. She works with birthmoms and adoptive parents throughout the country.
