We were asked to take a newborn baby a few weeks ago. At the time I was so down after our last lo left that I wasn't sure I could open myself up again.

I said yes but I really wasn't sure. It looks like baby may be here in the next day or so.

My first reaction is one of excitement and I'm hoping that means I'm ready.

Good luck, I always read your threads and think what an amazing job you do and what a wonderful gift you give these children.

I am sure you will care for this baby the same way as you have all the others. With love, compassion and a little bit of your soul to give her the best possible start in life.

Glad you are upto offering time/love to this little one - will she be with you long?

Thank you bothsmile

I'm not sure exactly how long of course but it shouldn't be very long as she will be going for adoption we think.

She had a good night but is taking very little milk and seems a little chesty. Midwife will call today so I'll mention it to her.

Dh was at work when I collected her from hospital and although he knew we had agreed to have this lo he didn't know when, I sent him a pic from my mobile and he was as thrilled as mesmile
