To our little girl,
Today I was told that your birth mother has changed her mind, and wants to keep you.
I know that she’s not well, and in the hospital, and that she doesn’t know what she’s doing or saying, or even thinking. She’s confused. I know that today’s situation will give way to another situation, that things may change again, in the next four or five weeks before you’re born. But this is such a difficult and hard time, because we don’t know what’s going to happen.
I’ve been thinking about keeping a journal for you, for you to look back on the process of us adopting you and bringing you home with us.
We have so many hopes and dreams for you, but now we’re not so sure we’ll meet you.
