Over the weekend my hubby and I were able to meet the birth parents (or expectant parents) who have chosen our profile and are placing their baby with us for adoption.
Our meeting with them went well. They are really nice and good people. They are also very sincere and I could tell how much they love their child. We conveyed to them our respect and admiration for them in making this difficult decision. And we also expressed the love and gratitude we have for them in choosing us to be their child's adoptive parents. It is humbling to have been chosen by them. As I read over and continue to stumble over my words as I type, I realize I can't seem to adequately describe my feelings for them.
In essence, they are doing something for us that we cannot do for ourselves. They will be placing a beautiful child in our arms to care for and to be a part of our family, and I will be forever grateful to them for this.
