Em is doing great, and having this experience with her has been one of my life’s greatest gifts. I was able to be there for his birth. I was the first to hold him. I got to cut his cord. P and I changed his first diaper and gave him his first bath. We are drunk with joy.
We will flood the blog with 1,000 photos of him, up close and personal, once his adoption consents have been signed. That will take place on Thursday, by Florida law, 48 hours after birth. Once the papers are signed, we will be legally his parents. Needless to say, we will be holding our breath until then, because it’s not complete until then. Em is very confident in her choice, and she has been so supportive of our bonding with little Harris. He’s rooming in with us tonight. Our great experience to this point has been all thanks to her love and dedication to this baby boy. He is so loved by all of us.
Harris is an angel with a full head of dark brown hair. He is enjoying lots of snuggles with us, and has latched and fed beautifully at breast. We will be thankful to the loving and constant Em and Ed for all of our days for this gift of all gifts.
We are two proud and in-love parents, and we cannot stop staring at him and his deliciousness. More to come in 2 days when we are legally family!
