Well, it doesn't look as though we are going to be chosen for Alexis. I'm kind of down about that, but am at peace with it too. The lady at Spence-Chapin said she really liked our family and wants to keep us in mind for future children, but the birth mother of Alexis has requested Alexis' new family is a New York (or at least East Coast) family that has first hand experience with Neurofibromatosis. That is a pretty tall order, but I hope that they are able to find her a family very, very soon. The birth mom wants an open adoption (including visits) which is why the location is important.
Alexis was not meant to be for us, but I hope to post within a day or so about another path I hope we are able to take. Just have to get Eric on board with the financies! =-)
