I have a story to tell you, one that is quite exciting and a great example of how great our God is! What could be the best gift that adopting parents could ask for? And especially on Mother's Day? If you are thinking what I am thinking, then theanswer is a little girl! Here is how the story goes: a Dr. related to an adoptive parent called on Friday night and explained a situation that happened at the hospital (where she works) early in the morning. A beautiful girl needed a home and after other Dr.'s contacted their people, Dr. D stepped up and asked for 15 minutes. It was then that she gave a call to see if they (adopting parents) were interested. She gave them details about the little one and they got in contact with their social worker. The potential father was on his way to Louisiana, so much of the talking took place over the phone Friday night. When all was said and done it was decided that potential mother get on a plane asap and get to Alaska. So that is what she did, Saturday afternoon. She got in late Saturday night after one of the most beautiful plane rides ever and little did she know what might happen next.
The Dr. told this potential mother that they were going to the hospital on Sunday (Mother's Day) to meet this little girl and possibly take her home (to the Dr.'s house that the potential mother is related to). TAKE HER HOME? Went through the . mother's head, how could this be. The potential father (still down south) thought the same thing, but it was true. They went to the hospital and met the nurses who were taking care of this beautiful girl. She was in a room getting TLC. Upon entering the room the potential mother was experiencing many emotions at once until she saw the most beautiful little girl with a knitted hat! It was love at first site, no doubt. The potential mother and the Dr. then got to spend some time with the little girl and get to know each other. A phone call was made to the potential father about her features and how beautiful she was. After talking a while the potential father wished the potential mother a Happy Mother's Day, then the flood gates opened. After a while the potential mother got to give the little girl a bath, which she did not like (the little girl). We had to get her dressed ready to go out into the real world. Then Dr. D gave her a check out exam and all looked good. A few papers still needed to be signed and a few goodbyes needed to be made and then watch out world here they came.
This Dr. D then took then into the downtown area for a tour, two fold, give the potential mother a tour and little girl a tour of the city in which she was born. After the tour a celebratory meal was at hand and it was good (fish of course). After the meal, they went to the store to buy essential baby things that were needed. So little girl experienced her first meal out (not eating :)) and her first shopping trip at 2 days old. Upon arriving at home all three ladies were very tired so after quickly getting aquainted to things, eating, where to sleep etc. Everyone laid down for the night and concluded the best Mother's Day ever!
