Meeting friends' new babies is always a lovely experience but today we met someone, who at times, I thought would never arrive. Tom and Hanna have been trying for a family for a long old time now. The journey has been a very long, painful one but about six weeks ago a call came from America to tell them that the mother, who had chosen them to adopt her son, had gone into labour.
They immediately flew to Florida and amazingly made it just in time for Tom to cut the cord. After a stressful month in the States going through the motions of adoption they have finally returned home with beautiful baby Alexander.
Meeting him today was truly special. Tom and Hanna now have their missing piece and their home feels so complete.
