Adoptive motherhood has its benefits.

Like, when you're purchasing a few newborn items and the clerk asks, "Are these gifts? Would you like a gift receipt?"

"No thank you, they're for me."

Perplexed and looking straight at your belly, "Oh, you're expecting? When are you due?"

"Yes, May 6th. It's a boy."

Smile and walk out the door. :)

Love it! We're adopting soon, April 24th is the birthmom's due date, know exactly what you mean. We're setting up nursery with our almost 3 year old adoptive son in tow. Very exciting! God's Will be done!

When we were awaiting our first child, we went to buy a buggy and cot, and the woman in the shop made me cry - she kept saying they had to have a due date for their records, and none of the dates I could offer were due dates as the child was already over a year old - and they date the warranty from the due date, so it was awful. I wish I could have found it funny and handled it with as much as grace as you did!

I LOVE the little timer on your sidebar! Praying for you and your little boy!

I'm sure people are equally amazed at how "in shape" you are/will be immediately after he is born!

I bet you could even wear non-pregnancy clothes home from the hospital!!

Yes- I love that you will be able to go to park days with a newborn and everyone will be amazed at the fit "supermom"! (Though I'm sure you will be a bit happily fatigued)
