Infant Adoption on Short Notice
Wow. My BFF2, who recently underwent successful cancer treatment on top of an unsuccessful, 5-year-long fertility struggle, just found out yesterday that her and her DH's dream is about to come true. They are going to be able to adopt a healthy, 4-month-old little boy via a private adoption. Happy Mother's Day indeed!
Little dude will be there in one week. Hallelujah, but also OMG. This is the shortest notice of an adoption I've ever heard of (obviously, the legal aspects will officially take much longer, not to mention the risk of the teen biomom changing her mind...). But they're optimistic, and have to proceed as though it's happening.
BFF2's DH emailed everyone with kids asking what to buy? How to prepare? Holy cow, HELP?!
What have you got, readers? (I made a short list, I'll post mine after hearing some of yours.)
Happy Mother's Day!!!!
