It's becoming a little more real.

On Monday, we found out that the birth mother that we are matched with is having a girl! The baby is also measuring for a June 14th due date instead of a June 24th due date. That's less than two weeks away!

This is such wonderful news! Mike is so excited that we are adopting another girl and I am, too. The earlier due date means there's a better chance we'll be in Florida before our friends in Tampa and Orlando travel to Minnesota during the first week of July.

The reality of adoption is never far from my mind, but I am really beginning to plan for this trip and caring for a new baby. And praying that this is the one God has chosen and that he is guiding our steps.
