I called my mom last night. We talked about this and that. We talked about my impending adoption. The more we talked, the more emotional I became.
Our baby's due date is right around the corner. Our birth mom lives in a different state and due to all the legal hoops we need to jump through after the birth, we will need to be there for about 4-5 weeks. Due to hubby's work schedule, there is also a strong chance that I may have to be there for a few weeks by myself. with a new baby. by. my. self.
As I was telling my mom all of this, I realized how terrified I am. I also realized how much I need my mom during this time in my life.
I just wish she didn't live so far away.
