Birth Mom Socks!
I don't think that I have previously mentioned that I am waiting to adopt a niece or nephew. Or more accurately, my (occasional co-blogger) sister and brother-in-law are waiting to adopt a baby and I am way WAY WAYexcited about becoming an aunt.
In the meantime, my sister and brother-in-law have matched with a potential birthmom!!! And she is due in the next few weeks!!! Yay!!! Baby!!!
It is pretty clear what our family is going to be grateful for this year at Thanksgiving. The nature of adoption means that nothing is certain until everything is finalized, but as you can see, I'm completely over the moon with excitement.
Please keep this amazing woman, this little baby and our family in your thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks.
How do you thank someone for such an awesome gift? Well, I decided to go with socks. And while I realize that socks could never compare to the gift of a baby, I did have to learn the kitchener stitch in order to make them. Surely that counts for something, right? (no? damn)
The crafty details:
I have another ball of orange that is destined to be a matching hat for the little one, but I'm not done yet. Stay tuned - I suspect there will be a lot of baby knitting in my future.
