Dear Friends & Family,
For those of you who haven’t heard we have been matched with a birth mother and are expecting a baby girl sometime between now and 11/5.

For those of you have heard, well good for you.

Because I like bullet points, you get lists!

Lists!  They’re great!  And fun!  And listy!


  • Birth mom’s name is S.  She is 36 and this is her 5th pregnancy and first adoption plan.  She is very sweet and we felt comfortable with her right away.
  • Baby is due 11/5, but that due date was based off of an August sonogram and is now thought to be sooner.
  • Baby is a girl, who will be named Bye-Yet.  Well, that’s the way it’s pronounced by the soon-to-be-Big-Sister crowd.  If that isn’t crystal clear, think a lovely shade of purple.  Think Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.  Think Peanuts.
  • Middle name is yet to be determined.
  • Baby will be born in Town 2 Hours Away, State that We Live In – which is great news for us because it makes things easier for us logistically and legally.

Things to Pray for:

  • Baby’s health.  She was exposed to quite a bit of alcohol before S knew about the pregnancy.  Everything looked good at her sonogram in August, but there are many things that there is just no way to know about ahead of time.
  • Birth dad details.  This is a bit of a longer story, but you can just pray that everything works out smoothly and in a timely manner.
  • Continued peace for S.
  • Self-control for me to keep from buying infant-sized clothes that match all of Baby Swiss’s new fall/winter clothes.

    So amazing. I too, love Bye-Yet’s name with Baby Swiss’, very cute. She will be an awesome big sister! What a blessing to have birth mom in the same state, definitely makes things easier! I will be praying for everyone as well.

    That’s SOON! Hooray! And this is the best news I’ve had all day.

    Bye-Yet is a lovely name. Boy, are you going to get tired of purple clothes.

    We will pray!

    Very happy for you guys…hugs & prayers!

  6. Such happy news.

    Bye-Yet is one of my favorite names. It’s Beatrix’s middle name.
