Seventh Post-Placement Visit

We had high hopes that this would be our last post-placement visit. But, if you read yesterday's post you will understand why our seventh visit may not be our last.

When our SW arrived we immediately told her what we had learned as far as the possible dates. She too couldn't believe it. But, we are all hopeful that it won't take as long as orinally told. She is going to contact our lawyer in the coming days to make sure that everything is in order and to learn more about the waiting that we may have to experience.

As always, our SW wanted to play with Baby C. When she first arrived, Baby C was sleeping. Yes, we gave in; we woke her up. She was in a zip-up, gown sleeper when I brought her out. But, our SW quickly wanted to play with her legs and feet. So, I offered to change her. She needed to get ready for the afternoon anyway.

Most of the visit was spent talking about and opening the girfts from Baby C's BM and maternal birthgrandmother. We had assumed that all of the gifts were from Baby C's BM, but our SW let us know that they all were not. Baby C's birthgrandmother also signed a greeting card and one one of the tags said the gifts were from her also.
All of Baby C' gifts.
Orginally, I hadn't wanted to visit with Baby C's BM and birthgrandmother until after finalization. If you remember, we only learned in late Novemeber that Baby C's birthgrandmother even knew of Baby C. Now that finalization may not be as soon as we would like, we have been discussing what we want to do. I am still now sure. But, I am sure that whatever decision that we will make will be the best for Baby C.

Sounds like Baby C has a lot of people rooting for her. I hope the rest of the process goes as quickly as possible for you.

I'll bet you were dreading the outcome of waking her from her nap. I'm glad she seemed to do ok. :)

That's wonderful! Our daughter's bio mother didn't want any sort of relationship (she actually relinquished at birth), and the bio grandmother said she wanted to pics, but she hasn't picked picked up any from the agency. Sad, they have no idea what a wonderful child she is or anything.
