I'm now practicing this line for future use:
"I'm sorry, I know you're curious, but the details are a private matter only to be revealed to our child."......over and over and over....
S went to his parent's house for dinner last night and brought them the book Adoption is a Family Affair. I read it earlier this week and it's a decent book for just getting people on the same page. The whole purpose of the dinner was for him to sit down with his parents and tell them what this experience has been like for him/us. We haven't really had that on his side of the family because they're not ones to talk about their feelings. I'm glad he decided to do it (not my suggestion!) and it sounds like he tried really hard to get across to them that the whole journey has been difficult for us. Especially watching his sister easily have another kid. Like we needed to hear how annoyed she was that she was pregnant before we took a family vacation to Maz.atlan! (I drank a lot on that trip)
Good thing the mountains didn't get snow at all this week. Well, it's bad and I'm frustrated, but we need to stay home and address some of our lack of planning. I sense a trip to B.R.U. looming. Anyone know of other stores that are good around Denver, especially for furniture? S's mom offered to buy our crib so maybe I should start looking even though we'll start out with a bassinet in our room. I'm definitely more of the "get everything in order and feel prepared" type. After this week, I can convince S that we need to get moving!
I hope the agency found a match for the expectant mother. Before anyone gets all up in arms at me for not saying "or that she decides to parent", this does not appear to be one of those cases. I believe that adoption should only happen in the case that an expectant mother truly can't or feels she can't take care of the child. Ack, I'm getting all defensive and I haven't even been attacked yet.
