We got "the call" yesterday that we had been picked, but that our baby was already here!
Hello! So, here are the stats!
Sadie Skielar Shockley was born at 0413 on 9.3.08 (her uncle Brent's birthday!)
She was 18 inches long and weighed in at a whopping 6 lbs and 13 oz.
She is perfect in more ways than we could imagine.
I was able to meet her birthmom "G" before she was discharged and that was an honor.
We are so excited that she wants to have an open adoption with us and this sweet baby girl she has asked us to parent!
Her name is from both her parents. "G" named her Skielar, which we love and we named her Sadie, which of course we love as well! You've got to slow down to say it, but we think it's just perfect!
We'll share more later, until then please keep us all in your prayers. You all know the routine, we are taking Sadie home on "legal risk" which means that "G" could change her mind before her court date (we don't know this date yet). Please pray for all of us that God would guide us through this!
Love you all!
