27 years ago today.

Twenty-seven years ago today John and I got a call from our adoption facilitator. They told us that we were matched with a young birthmother who was due in just one week.   What? We only filed for adoption on September 14th, less than a month earlier.

Of course, we said yes. They did tell us that although she was due in one week, she would probably be late.

Starting the next day we began telling people that we had filed for adoption, and in fact we will have a baby sooner than we thought.

However, we were not prepared when just four days later, Joe was born.

It was a wonderful, amazing miracle of a day for us.
