    Default Santa's Late Delivery

    Friday around 2:30pm I was on the internet dicking around as usual when the phone rang. A woman was going in labor in Lousiana and was giving the baby up for adoption. Me and my wife were asked if we wanted the baby boy. Not able to have kids to this point it was a no-brainer for me. We immediately took off for the great state of Lousiana and was just 30 minutes late of ourboy's birth. It was a couple hours drive but well worth it. We spent a few hours there and made the trek back home. I spent most of Saturday trying to figure out what paperwork I'd need etc. I decided I wanted to have my wife begin bonding with the child so we along with the grandparents to be made another trek. Sunday we get a call from the Lousiana Child Protective Services (OCS) asking for us to return. We go back and by this time the birthmother is demanding to go home. We were informed that if she leaves it would be viewed as an abandonment and the state of Lousiana would step in and claim the baby. We went into panic mode. We were told if a licensed Lousiana attorney didn't provide us some paperwork and the mother bailed we would lose the baby. So while you guys were sweating the Cowboys getting trounced I am in full panic. Perspective changed dramatically. Being from Texas I had no attorney contacts in Lousiana at 6 pm on a Sunday night following a holiday. Sunday in my panic I began calling friends,co-workers, etc. trying to find any LA Attny. My boss who I didn't know was in evening church service until later stopped his minister's sermon. The entire congregation split up and began making calls trying to find me legal aid those who couldn't prayed. I have no doubt those folks helped me the greatest.I was about in tears until a judge stepped in. He had a notary show up with the papers. Birthmother signed and rode off into the sunset. Me and my wife were asked to stay. We didn't have anything with us. Monday night we were released at 11:45 pm. So here I am a new daddy to a future rock n roller named Beau.

    It has been a whirlwind trip in a few short days. Meet my boy Beau.

    That's awesome. Both my sister and my cousin have adopted and each have
    their own dramatic tales such as what you describe. I couldn't be more proud
    of them and humbled, as it is one of the greatest things an adult can do.

    Just be careful, my sis didn't think they could get pregnant either, but as
    soon as they adopted (3 abondoned girls!), guess what iconic bird landed
    on their doorstep?

    Congrats!

    That's a mighty cute baby, DAD! I'm very happy for you and Mrs. Limecuda and for Grandma and Grandpa Limecuda, too...and for the birth mother. At least she knows the baby is in kind, nurturing hands.

    What an absolutely awesome way to start the new year. Words are not enough to describe how happy I am for you and your wife. Your story had me choked up as it is a tremendous gift you have given the baby, to bring him into a loving home. God bless you all and the birth mother especially for giving him a chance.

    By the way, I really love the name Beau, so sturdy yet gentle in some way.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    That's awesome. Congratulations to you & yours. I'll echo mistere's comments about not being able to get preggo though. 6 yrs ago our assoc. pastor & his wife adopted a boy after several years of trying to no avail to get pregnant. They were both in their mid-late forties & just really believed they were past that point. A couple months after they bring home their boy, low and behold they got another one on the way.

    Those hospital nursery blankets must all be made by the same company 'cause they're the same here at our local hospitals too & I've seen them on TV shows & stuff & they're identical.
