Amazing Day

Daniel and I got to meet Jeremiah's birthmom today.


She is an amazingly strong woman and it was so wonderful to get to spend most of the day with her.

She gave me a picture of her ultrasound from the end of September.
Yesterday she had another Dr's appt. and Jeremiah has grown to 4 lbs!!! She is only 30 weeks pregnant- so he may come early?!? She said I could come with her to her next appointment if I wanted to- I said- OF COURSE. (Even though she lives about 3 hours away it will be totally worth it to be able to be there with her!!!)

It's so funny how we all have preconceived ideas of what people are like. Remember we've only gotten to talk on the phone before today. She told me she thought I'd be short, prissy, and older. I told her I thought she would be shorter as well- she's about two inches shorter than me, but still taller than I expected (she's really pretty as well). She said that she thought Daniel would look like Leonardo DiCaprio. :) She really liked Daniel (I mean who doesn't) and I was able to play some of his CD for her. But our preconceived ideas still make me laugh. Prissy and Leonardo. Isn't that funny??? HA! I feel like we really hit it off and had a great day.

I also got to feel Jeremiah kick! He had been kicking away and I totally got to feel a big kick. So crazy! So glad she is going through all this for us. I feel amazingly blessed and I am so grateful to God for working out all these details.

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I am blown away that He has chosen this plan for us!
