Waiting on Bobby

Petunia just met with Ms. Stork, and we have a little news:

1. Ms. Stork really liked our photo album and letter. She didn't suggest any changes, so Petunia is driving them over to the baby's parents' agency right now. I'm really proud of us for working so hard this weekend and for being true to ourselves in all the materials we put together for Ariana and Bobby.

2. Ms. Stork got Ms. Scary to agree to a set fee in the event that we adopt Ariana and Bobby's child. Even if the agency's costs go over that amount, our portion would remain the same. It's a verbal agreement right now, but if Bobby's cool with us, Ms. Stork will get it in writing. Now we can start investigating loan possibilities.

3. A couple other families are looking over the baby's medical information. Right now, we're the only folks who have said that we feel able to meet the baby's medical needs.

4. Ms. Stork is pressuring Ms. Scary on the whole lezzie moms angle. Ms. Stork told Ms. Scary it's not fair to keep stringing us along; she wants Ms. Scary to find out from Bobby whether he'd consider 2 moms for his baby.

And that's pretty much it. One new wrinkle, but tons of advocacy from Ms. Stork. Still in the same place overall, though: We're waiting on Bobby. We've done all we can do at this end.

You've both put so much work into this. Being true to yourselves can't help but bring the right outcome, one way or another. No matter what, you can feel good knowing that you are putting your true selves out there.

I'm wishing you the very best and look forward to hearing more.

It sounds like everything is going great. Advocacy from Ms. Stork will make all the difference - not just in how it goes but in how crazy you two will be through this process!
