So here is the latest on Levi and his birth mother. We will call his birth mother "E". E is doing well and she is still on bed rest at the hospital. Both Levi and E are healthy and stable. Her water broke early this week and she will remain on bed rest for the remainder of the pregnancy. We are hoping that her amniotic fluid will remain at a high enough level that we can wait to deliver for a few weeks. (35 weeks is the goal that was stated to us and he is currently 31 weeks 4 days.)
Please pray for both Levi and E for their health and a safe delivery. E is having a hard time because she is away from her family since she is in the hospital. Our next steps are to fill out some paperwork and send in the money that is due at the time of this match. After the agency receives those things, we will have a phone interview with E to get to know each other. I am so excited! This is going to be the best Mother's Day ever!
I have so many things I want to write but I am going to break them up into a few posts that will come over the next few days. I want to tell you the meaning behind the name Levi Harold. I want to tell you more details about the phone call from our agency. I also will post about our financial situation and where we go from here. The long and short of the finances is that God will provide, and if you were waiting to donate, now is the time to do so. All of that is coming very soon. In the meantime, here are some pictures from the impromptu "You are Chosen" Party that we had last night after we found out the great news.
