It's been nine months since our application for adoption was submitted to our agency. A typical pregnancy would be over by now, and our little baby would be home, ringing in the new year. This is not a typical pregnancy.
At this point our baby (if the current timeframe remains accurate) is in his or her 3rd trimester. I wonder if he's kicking and rolling around as I type this. I wonder how his first mother is feeling, what food she is craving, if she is at peace in her adoption plan. I wonder if she is sad that her time with this precious little one is coming to a close. I also wonder if she thinks about us.
My thoughts will be with her over the next 3 months, as it will over all the months and years to follow.
