20 days

The meeting today was wonderful, we laughed, cried, hugged, and talked a lot.

It was amazing to see the love that they both have for their child.  The BF said "I always have said, whenever I have kids, I want them to have the best life possible, right now, the best life for him is with you." 

Wow.  They are so selfless.

They gave us an ultrasound picture. And she let us feel him in her stomach (honestly, the first pregnant stomach I ever felt!).  She asked if we would come to the appointment they have on two weeks.  At that appointment, they will decide if they are going to induce her or scheduled c-section.  Either way, he will be here on the 28th.
In twenty days, our lives will be forever different.

In twenty days, our son will be born.

(or maybe before).
