Scott and I have talked about this possibility and feel the same way we did when we started the process with Nadia, even though the possibility of re-unification is so much greater. If we were to keep little Lucy at arms length, not letting her completely into our hearts in order to protect ourselves, that would be unfair to her. We are willing to put our emotions on the line because that is what this little girl needs and deserves. This means of course we are also putting Nadia's heart on the line and in reality anyone following our story. However, we are certain that we can overcome the sadness we would feel if she were to be reunited with her birth family. In the end, if that does happen we will rest in the knowledge that we gave the absolute best we could to this baby for as long as we possibly could, understanding that it will help her in the long run.
