calling

‘Yes, this is our daughter.’ My husband cut me off. Before we hung up, I could hear him telling everyone around him, ‘I’m going to be a dad!’: Military family adopts child that was ‘always intended to be ours.’

“I could feel absolutely this was our daughter. Hear me out, before you say anything.’ Those are the first words I heard. ‘It’s a girl and she’s due next month.’ I could barely speak.’ Our hearts ached for her, we stood there sobbing because this strong, smart and selfless birth mother’s deepest grief would be our greatest joy. It was our daughter’s maternal grandma who brought us both close in a warm hug as she was leaving and whispered ‘go get your daughter’ before she left.”
