baby J.

"So what about that name?" I asked Andrew one night, a couple days after we got back from Atlanta. We talk every night before going to sleep, as we are winding down, in the dark. "I don't know if we can use it anymore..." I trailed off.

We had carefully avoided calling that baby girl J, and even when we were holding her for some reason, we hadn't said our name out loud. But others had, and there had been one email, after we met her before we found out that she wasn't to be ours. I wondered. I love that name.

Andrew flipped on the light, looked at me. He shook his head. "No," he said. "That wasn't her. That wasn't J." I can tell when my husband means what he's saying, and he meant it.

And it turns out, he was right.

But more on that in a couple days. (do stay tuned...)



  1. Staying tuned and hoping for good news from you soon!

  2. I love a good cliffhanger! As always I cant wait to hear more!

  3. We just passed the 3 year mark of meeting our sweet boys for the first time, and I've been feeling sentimental about it.

    I'm looking forward to this day for you!

  4. I am pretty new to your blog but can't wait to hear more. You are handling things with such grace. I hope you get matched again soon and Baby J comes home.

  5. Oh this is exciting! I will be praying for you still and watching for some good news!

  6. I must say I'm intrigued! Will certainly stay tuned, how could anyone resist! Sending lots of positive thoughts your way and also hoping that you, A and your J find each other soon.

  7. 'Grinning' Hoping for some good news.
    I love how he was so passionate about her not being Baby J. I get a feeling my husband would be the same way.

  8. uhhh, hello, you can't do that to us! We dying out here to hear "the rest of the story".

  9. I just have to say how amazing God's timing is....your counter just reached 9 months today!!! Which of course is the normal length of pregnancy and you got your little girl a last week. God is amazing you didn't have to wait longer than any other mother waiting to get their precious gift!!! I am so happy for the two of you, my correction, the three of you!!!!
