So my friend lost a baby to preeclampsia last year (6/6/11), and now they're adopting (yay!)!

They just got done with the homestudy steps. You can read about their journey on Passing Pinwheels (http://www.passingpinwheels.com) and about their efforts to pay for it at Passing Pinwheels: Flop Flop to Adopt Fundraiser and Giveaway! (http://www.passingpinwheels.com/2012/05/flop-flop-to-adopt-fundraiser-and.html?showComment=1336670422498#c38852367164518 94523)

(This didn't fit neatly in a category, so I figure waiting on a birthmom to pick you is SORT OF comparable to pregnancy in a really, really broad sense, so, that's why I picked this section. Well, that, and the whole thing started with a pregnancy-gone-wrong.)

Oh, and she's a WAHM too. :)

I'm sorry to hear about her stillbirth but I am happy that they are adopting! I think it's such a great idea and am all for it :)

Sorry for her loss :-( Adoption is a wonderful thing! Everyone wins with adoption! I am very excited to hear that she will provide a good home to a child in need:)
