We started the adoption process last year and were matched with a baby to be born out of state on May 7th. Ivy had a plan of her own and was born unexpectedly at 33 weeks 4lbs 3oz. As soon as we heard the birth mother was in labor we threw everything in the truck and left home. Ivy spent two weeks in the NICU with the two of us by her side. We remain out of state going on three weeks, anxiously waiting for interstate adoption approval in order to bring our little girl home.
