Last week, Expecting Momma found out the gender of her baby and decided to share!
A couple of weeks ago she wanted the gender to be a surprise. We of course supported that decision 100%.
I am not a surprise gal. Nope. Not one bit. So it was tough for me but again, totally good with her preference.
(On a side note: In adoption I find it easier to emotionally and mentally connect with the baby before birth by knowing their gender. Doing a gender reveal creates potential risk for heart-ache if a disruption takes place…but in our minds this baby is worth risking our hearts for. A place of vulnerability indeed but we believe we ought to act on the truth that we know today, which is that an Expectant Mother has made an adoption plan for her baby with us. We want to do everything we can in our hearts and minds to prepare for that child and a special reveal is part of that process for us, among several other things.)
