Finally we were on the road at 7:18 in the morning! We got another call Marissa at around 8 saying she was 7 cm and that Jack Ass of a doctor will not give Courtney epidural because she did not take a class on it! What the Hell! I swear only if I would have been there. I was at doctors appointment and at no point were we told anything about a class or no epidural! I am wondering if he was just trying to teach her some lesson! ASS!!!! Marissa said in all of her years she has never head of such!
So 9:12 central time our son is born!! Marissa called and held the phone up so we were able to hear our little man. What lungs on him! The next 7 hours were honestly the longest drive of my life. Carter Andrew Burbules weighed 6 pounds 4 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. Dark brown hair, blue gray eyes just perfect in every way!!
We were able to be there with Courtney and her family! I love her dad and mama Dot. They are amazing. I feel so lucky not only do we have a beautiful boy but we have gained a new extended family! The hospital staff were great they put us in a private suit and we were allowed to keep him in our room with overnight. He did great I had to wake him up to feed and change him! I have fallen head over heals in love with him! I love him just as though I carried him for 9 months.
Monday May 19, 2008 she signed her TPR papers then we signed our placement papers! She has 10 days from May 20 to change her mind. I do not see her changing her mind she really wants the best for her baby and she feels like we are what is best for him!!
