About sweet Vivi....... I am waiting for the other shoe to drop, but God has gifted us with the BEST baby! She is SO ALERT, and seems to go with the flow. We have only had her 9 hours, and she has been awake over 3 of them. She eats like a champ, and loves to be cuddled. The nurses were sad to see her go, because they said she was such a joy to be around these past three days.
As for the birth mom. She had been adament from the point of giving birth that she didn't want to know anything about us, or us about her. That has been hard for me to stomach these past 2 days because I really want my daughter to have some sense of who her bio parents were. I have prayed and asked others to pray, and this morning called Dina (social worker) to tearfully tell her at parental termination to please convey to birthmom that if she changes her mind, we would embace her. Dina came back and told us did not only did birthmom allow a picture of herself to be taken for us, but took our picture as well. She also said that someday when she gets settled, she may contact our agency and ask for all our photo and letter updates. I will take that! Please continue to pray for peace for her. My joy is her pain, and that thought is never far from my mind.
Time for me to try to sneek in some sleep! Enjoy some more Vivi cuteness!
