I can't believe it has been 4 months already since we've been on the waiting list. The latest stats from our agency: 5 placements in the last 2 months, 3 of them were surprise babies! So that narrows down the "competition"! :) They are currently working with 2 new birthmothers who have not chosen families yet. One is due in April and has been shown our profile so we wait patiently to see if she picks us! They have started a new support program for birthparents by putting together "self-nurturing bags" for the birthmothers to leave the hospital with. Its a difficult time for them and it is a nice gesture to give them something just for themselves. So I will be collecting items such as lotions, shampoos, soaps, bubble bath, self-pampering items, etc to donate to the agency to help with getting these kits together. If anyone would like to donate some items, let me know and I would love to deliver them with the bunch I am collecting. What a great way to pamper these scared, selfless individuals.
