Well, a week from today I should be holding my newborn baby son if all goes as planned. We had a great conversation with Linda, our birth mom today. This time around it is so much different from the last time. Linda is a part of our family. She has managed to put our concerns to rest. We have plans to have an afternoon of carry out in the park and watching Logan play next Wednesday. How cool is that?
We were up front with Linda and asked her if she wanted us to bring Logan or not. She said she’d love to see him, so he is going with us. It is kind of like deja-vu because she will have her same support person with her, and the same social worker will be with her in the delivery room.
By the way, Logan is already calling his brother by his name. He knows which room is his brothers’ room. He has been playing with a toy from Michelle’s childhood while in the bathtub, holding the plastic baby in his lap and saying he is holding his brother. Of course, we realize there will be a period of adjustment, but I think he is at least going into this with a positive attitude.
Tune in next week to hear more!
