Koda Mae’s birth mother contacted our office one month before her baby was due and wanted to keep everything confidential. She came to our office to meet us with her mother and did not want to meet the adoptive parent she would chose to adopt the baby. When we contacted Isabel about being chosen by the birth mother, she was ecstatic but had hoped that she would have been able to meet the birth mother at least once. As the match progressed, the birth mother expressed to her caseworker that she had a change of heart and wanted to meet the adoptive mother. It was arranged for them to meet at our office where the birth mother and her mother came in to meet Isabel for the first time. Days later they all were in the labor and delivery room together to take part in the birth of Koda Mae.
