We're home!!!! We got a call Sunday morning from the dr. asking us if we wanted to bring the baby home. She was well enough to leave the hospital! The heart murmur wasn't detected, the rapid heartbeat is gone, the infection is gone, blood sugar levels are normal and the jaundice is gone! We were, needless to say, thrilled!! So after Emily's last round of antibiotics at 3 and then a couple of hours of bathing, changing, taking her newborn pics from the hospital and feeding her one last time (cause she was a hungry girl and couldn't wait) it was time to go!
After leaving the hospital we went to Emily's birth mom's house to visit. Such a wonderful visit.
Then we went back to the hotel
Monday afternoon (my dad's birthday, and Emily's 1 week birthday) was court where K signed relinquishment and consent forms and since there is no agency involved in our adoption, the judge signed legal guardianship of Emily to us.
Then it was time to come home!
What a wonderful few days it has been. K is never far from our thoughts. We owe her so much!
And finally, 9 years ago today, I married the most amazing man! Happy Anniversary Jacob!
