This gives me goosebumps!
I am a school counselor. I have been on maternity leave this past year and will be going back next month.
Therefore, I am getting in the swing of things and checked my email yesterday. I had a 2-week-old message from our home-school liaison. She was asking for financial support for a young couple who was considering adoption for their soon-to-be (any day) born baby. The support would be used for gas for them to visit the baby while they made the transition. The young couple was not 100% sure what they wanted to do yet - as you can imagine.
The home-school liaison has become a friend of mine over the years we have worked together and I was sorry I checked my email so late.
I hopped over to facebook before shutting the computer and was greeted with a feed from a friend on there. Pam. She was excitedly announcing they were adopting a baby boy who was born to a young couple on July 1st.
The 2 couples live in the same town. And yes, they are connected (I don't think I am giving away any identifying information since I don't know the young couple, but it is obvious Pam has a new child - so I think this is okay to share here).
I called my mother-in-law, Jo Jo, to ask if she had heard the exciting news of Pam. I know Pam through Jo Jo.
As I was talking to Jo Jo, I shared I was going to called the local adoption agency to inquire about donating our freezer-full of breast-milk (since Calvin is not having dairy anymore, and there is sooooo much).
I got the idea from an OB nurse I stopped to talk to on Tuesday after bringing Calvin in for his 12 month check-up. I had forgotten about this adoption agency.
In the middle of my talking, it dawns on me that maybe Pam would like the milk! After a few phone calls and time to think it over, it is a go! We will be delivering breast-milk tonight! It was all meant to be - what I call "A God Thing"!
