Prayers (tentatively) answered

Today we finally heard back from the social worker who was contacting the birthfather. He has agreed to sign the consent! She said the conversation went as well as it could and they set up a time to meet to go over the consent document and have him sign it. That was a big relief to hear. I started taking estrogen to induce lactation. The protocol is not what I was expecting after doing some internet research, but my doctor went over it several times with a lactation counselor here. My lovely friend gave me a pump and I just need to get the parts that you wouldn't want to share with someone else and am due to start pumping in a few days. I sent a bunch of documents to the lawyer today, so it has been quite a full day for us! And then I came home to a Valentine box from my mom which included a few things she's been keeping around forever and some new clothes.


  1. This is such great news! Happy pumping! I really hope it goes well for yoy! Did you get the cloth diapers already? There is one brand I love - esp after the newborn / infant phase but it's in the dirty wet bag right now. When I wash it I'll send the name to you. Happy V day!

  2. Yay! What great news:) I'm glad you had a good VDay:)
