Here’s our adoption story…after being active for seven months, Veronica called us with a birth mom that was interested in us. The birth mom was due within one month so we needed to see if this would work fast. We immediately clicked with her and matched relatively quickly.
One thing is for certain: the baby is the one who determines the due date! We spoke to the birth mom the evening before Zavie was born and she stated that the doctor said it could be anytime, but we all thought that meant within the week. We got a call early in the morning that our birth mom was in labor. We immediately made the necessary arrangements to get to the hospital in a different state.
Before we arrived, Zavie was born weighing eight pounds, four ounces and he was 21 inches long. It has been a little over five weeks now getting to know this little boy. Both of us loved him immensely instantly, but now we are just learning his personality. He is very animated with so many different expressions, smart and independent. He has been trying to hold his head up on his own since Day 1, he tries to hold his bottle and wipe his face after feeding. We can’t wait to learn more about him as he grows. Thank you so much Lifetime!!!
