We have a medical Update

He's growing like crazy. He's gone from the 25% in height and weight to the 75% percentile and his head went from 10% to 10-25%. He's had his second Hep B vaccine and is sporting an umbilical hernia which is not a big deal (from what we are told). WE are also #11 in line for DNA testing. This is a very important step. The birth mother will be signing off for a third time during DNA testing and she will be with the baby and hold him for a photograph. This is a point that, if a birth mother were to change her mind, this is when she would do it. I would understand if she did, he's a beatiful baby. I hope that she is at peace with her choice. She is (and will always be) in my prayers. Congrats to Kim who has just received her referral of an absolutely, positively beautiful little girl. Crazy girl and her crazy husband are flying off toot sweet to meet their little one. Safe journey Kim & Dan :) Tonight we are grocery shopping for Saturday. What's Saturday you ask? Just a big, crazy bash with about a bazillion Parrotheads. We are partying with about 40 other people starting at 11 a.m. Should be much fun.

  1. Good news on all fronts it sounds like.

    Do you have an idea of how long being 11th in line means?

    Hope you enjoy your Parrothead bash!

  13. Holy moly, what a growth spurt. That is wonderful news. Did they give you any idea how long it would take for you to be #1 for the DNA testing? Either way, that is good news.

    Not to burst your bubble, but the bm can change her mind at any time up until she signs the final adoption decree (which is after PGN). Its unlikely though that she will. Maybe you already knew this though???

    We received our bm picture in the mail with the DNA test results. I was really glad about that so that Gabe will be able to see it.
