We made it safely to the birth state and are now settled into our hotel room, which has a view across the street to the hotel. We are doing well, although I'm getting really nervous. We are going to get to bed early (as if I'll be able to sleep). The agency has said the birthmother was in a much better mood in the last few days than she was previously. I guess that is a good sign that she is at peace with the decision. The hospital appears to be familiar with adoptions and said we will be able to spend time with the baby as we want. They do have a number of c-sections scheduled, so it seems it will be pretty busy there and so that might make us get squeezed out.
We went out for breakfast on Sunday to one of our usual places. While we were there, we saw a Caucasian couple with a little Black boy. E practically had to glue me to the seat to stop me from going to talk to them. But I just kept thinking that soon that will be us!
I'll try update you guys with what happens tomorrow, although I don't know what the schedule will be like.
