Bows From Baby C's BM

Last Wednesday, I was able pick up Baby C's 7 Week pictures. I was so happy with their quality. Guess what? We had them done at JCP (JC.Penny)! Their turn around time was only 10 days. I had a 50% coupon from my Entertain.ment magazine, so I got way more pictures than I probably would have without it. We also got a 16x20 picture framed. It looks wonderful in our dining area. We look great as a family of 3!

As soon as I got home, I cut out all of the pictures and made stacks according to who got which ones. One of the stacks was for Baby C's birth family. I wanted to get the pictures to them ASAP. So, I emailed the agency to let them know that I would be mailing them the next day.

I was happy to see an email from the agency a short time later. They had heard from Baby C's BM that day. She had dropped off bows for Baby C! They said that they were super cute! The agency was going to mail them to us since it is a good distance for us to travel.

I mailed out the pictures on Thursday, but also learned that the agency didn't want to mail out the bows because they were afraid that they would get smashed. I understood, but I am very anxious to see these bows.

I called the agency Friday afternoon to see how late that they would be open. Unfortunately, they were getting ready to leave. They told me again that they bows were adorable and that one of the BM's family members had made them for Baby C. She even said that they were getting more ribbon to make more.

The agency also told us that Baby C's BM heard that the pictures were there and that she is going to pick them up on Monday. I can't wait to hear what she thinks of them.

If you have been reading my posts lately you know that I love me some bows.

But these aren't going to be just any old bow. These are going to be bows from Baby C's BM.

Did you see that amazing purple blanket in Baby C's new pictures? That's from her BM also. We received that during our visit together at the agency.

I can't wait to see these bows...

Don't forget to check out Baby C's 7 Week pictures. They are in the post before this one!

How wonderful to share gifts with your daughter's BM. We frequently exchange gifts/letters/pics with my youngest son's birth mom and it has been such a blessing for all of us. Unfortunately, our older son's BM is unable to communicate w/us due to her personal situation adn it really makes me sad.
