Strange Reactions

We finally told everyone in our family, we couldn't wait until the next appointment which is a week from today. Some family members were extremely excited and others weren't happy at all. I had some that were happy and excited until we told them we were adopting, then they were like no, don't adopt, whats wrong with you?.... About half of the people we told acted like it was the most horrible sin we could ever commit. I wasn't expecting these types of reactions, they almost had me in tears. I told one family member, "Well, my husband, me, and they baby will all just be happy together, even if no one else is." What is wrong with people today? Why can't the just see that ALL children are a blessing from the Lord?!

First Appointment

Last Tuesday, April 6th was the first appointment. Things didn't go as planned, I was supposed to be there, but wasn't even told of the appointment. I was told later that night that the birth mother went to her first appointment. I was kind of upset, but I'm just glad that she finally went to the doctor.

The doctor said the baby was perfectly fine and healthy so far. The baby was at 10 1/2 weeks, so now its at 11 1/2. Its heartbeat was 155 and the baby's due date is October 28!

Its exciting! The next appointment is May 7th, I can't wait! We will probably tell our family after this appointment. I'm kind of nervous of how they'll react....
