More to the story

So, to fill in a little more information, we found out about the baby about two months ago, but the mom didn't want to meet us and she didn't know the sex of the baby.  We chose not to tell anyone and wait it out.  Eventually, we were told it was a girl and then we patiently waited for her to be born. 

Baby was due July 4th, but about a week before that, the birth mom, R, asked if we would come meet her at the hospital after the baby was born.  Her parents wanted to meet us also.  We were nervous, but said we would do that as long as the papers were signed. 

She didn't have the baby until the 9th, and when they called us to tell us, they said "the baby is a BOY."  I was so shocked.  Totally. 

She signed the papers the next day and we drove a couple hours to meet him and the family.  It was really a great meeting and the family was so sweet.  R had asked that we have a room where we could spend time with Jackson.  And they all loved the name we chose for him. 

We got to spend a little more time with him the next morning and with R before she was discharged.  It was a special time and we were glad to have those moments with her.  We then had a little more time with Jackson before we had to drive back home and wait out the revocation period.  Jackson went to interim care and we went home and boxed up all the pink stuff and shopped for blue stuff. 

Tuesday afternoon we spent the day registering for baby things and then we drove to the agency, signed all the papers and then the foster mom arrived and we cried and smiled and laughed and took pictures.  Then we drove home, a family of three.
