Glad it went so well!!! It's a great feeling to have a good match. I can't add anything to the labor and delivery part but generally I agree that if something falls through you will be crushed whether you were there or not. We flew to meet our PBM a couple weekends ago and though it was optional and very expensive we figure that if everything goes as planned we will appreciate that time we had with her. If you can be there for your son's birth then go for it! What an awesome experience.

Sounds like we are at the same stage in our hopes for starting our families!

I'm so glad to hear that it went well! I will agree with the other ladies who said that if the PBM wants you in the room, you should do it... for all the reasons already mentioned.

Good luck!!!

We are planning on a semi-open adoption, letters and lots of pictures, with the opportunity for them to see him in the future. They both don't feel this would be a possibility until he is two--it would be too painful for them to see him when he is really little.

We are having an open adoption! We are still in negotiation on how open we are going to be.
