Yes, we’re still waiting for Mattie. We got up early and drove to St. Louis, arriving just before lunch. We were told that our birthmom would get a call sometime between 4:30AM and 11AM. However at 11:30, the agency had still not received a call from the birthmom saying she had been called in. Just a little stressful on my end.
Just as we were sitting down for lunch at 1PM, we got a call that she had indeed checked in around 12:30 or so, and didn’t call the agency until after she was checked in. Needless to say they didn’t start the induction until about 1:30PM.
We arrived at the hospital to visit with our birth parents. We were with them for an hour an a half and the we headed back to the hotel.
As of 7:30PM no real progress on the labor, so it looks to be a long night. And sadly even if things did start rolling this evening, the hospital is not super welcoming of adoptive parents, and we are unable to return until tomorrow when visiting hours begin.
So, we will try to sleep and pray a lot, and quite possibly when we get to the hospital at 8:30AM, we will be meeting our son.
Thank you so much for the prayers, and please keep ’em coming!
