I am totally blown away by the hugely mixed emotions I've experienced over the past few days since we found out. Monday I was excited and thrilled and full of baby longing. Tuesday I wanted to be really quiet and private about the whole thing. And most of today I spent feeling deeply sad because there is a mama in our world that has to say goodbye to her baby because she can't afford to parent. It weighs deeply for me that my joy comes through someone else's deep pain. I'm sure there are many waves of emotion about adoption to come through the years.
So congratulate me and mourn with me. The Barnacle Family is growing.
