well, all i can say is we were meant to be here for this–to be here for the birthmom–regardless of the adoption.
we took a quick break for dinner earlier. when heather got back to the room, the birthmom was glad to see her. she had begun to have some panic attacks worrying about her kids back home. she cares so deeply for them and the delivery is going much longer than she had wanted. heather and the nurses calmed her down. she reluctantly asked heather if she could stay with her tonight. heather broke down and said, “of course. we have no other plans.” heather has this way with people to simply comfort them.
so things are kinda slow now. i might run to barnes&noble to get the birthmom some books she’s asked for. we will do anything for her.
