Transcription: 
When my husband and I were going through the adoption process, we did meet a couple of birth moms, one of whom we matched with shortly before she was due. And she called us when she went into labor and we went to the hospital and unfortunately the baby died in utero before she had a chance to deliver. So that was a significant loss, but in the moment, we felt just as bad for her in having lost the pregnancy in that unexpected way, and we tried to be there as much as we could to support her. And we were able to sort of pick ourselves up by the boot straps and have the faith to move on with the hope that our right situation would eventually come along. And that's what we also tell our adoptive parents, is that you might have some stops and starts along the way, but ultimately you will have the baby that you were meant to have.
