So Close, But Yet So Far...

On that first night after Lucia's birth, the hospital would not let us even view her through the nursery window. Very disappointing. They wanted all paperwork signed.

Despite the rules, we were able to catch this little glimpse of sweet Lucia through a crack in the hospital blinds. It would be about thirty-six hours longer before we'd be able to hold her.

On the left is Sandra, the case worker for Lucia's birth mother.
She facilitated the adoption for us through our agency, An Open Door.
Sandra is a really wonderful person and helped us with both adoptions.
