I will never forget that evening. After a two hour meeting with our group, Bear and I had 15 minutes to run up to our room and prepare for the arrival of the babies. Bear and I were told that we would be last to receive our baby, so we didn't exactly hurry.
Bear and I rode the elevator down to the third floor. I was so nervous and excited. Years and years of trying to create a family was about to come to an end and a new chapter of our lives was beginning. Bear and I rounded the corner to the conference room where we saw two nannies sitting on the sofa with babies. I almost instantly knew that Nugget was one of those babies.
The next few minutes were wild and crazy. Suddenly we were told to put everything down and get out our passports, our baby was here. He was coming now!! I handed someone a camera, scrambled for our paperwork all the while being pushed towards the door. No time to take a breath - Boom - here is your baby, take him ~ take him, I heard. I didn't want to rip him out of his nanny's arms. He was crying so hard. Some woman came over and took Nugget from the nanny and handed him to me.
