we're a MATCH!

Last night was awesome! J & B came here hung out for a half hour or so, even brought the girls gifts! we went to the mill street pub which is a local restaurant here in town and is so good! we talked and talked and talked for hours, 3 1/2 to be exact! It was super comfortable and felt like we felt like we've known each other forever. Dinner was delicious and they insisted on treating us . we spoke about what brought them to surrogacy and how their families felt about it and conversely how I came to become a surrogate and how our families felt. We ended with J saying "were going to contact Blair monday and tell her we want to move forward and you decide when youre ready". I was like umm were SO ready!  So next step is the RE doctor to go over IVF and learn about meds and how to administer them. Im so excited and no longer the least bit nervous! I cant wait to spend time with them again!

Its all making sense

My sister told me yesterday that after thinking about WHY I choose to do this, that she is so proud of me and no longer afraid. She supported me like she does with everything in life, but knowing that I have her FULL support and that I make her proud, it means the most to me. I look up to her and I always have and to make her proud, it means the world.

Last night at a wedding, Brian and I were sat at a table away from our family which we thought was odd. Than towards the end of the night it all made sense. There, at our table were IPs, not my IPs but some other lucky surros IPs. I didnt know them yet we managed to be at the same table. The bride introduced us and we started talking. It was nice to hear from an intended moms stand point, her fears and desires and the excitement on her face speaking of her little girl Mia. That did it for me EVEN MORE if thats possible. Hearing her made what Im doing seem so much more real and life changing. She said they went through 3 other surros that backed out, that broke my heart. After they spend a lot of money to get things started these women left them. I think that its mainly the agency's fault (i started with this agency and RAN fast away from them). 

A lady that goes into my moms work, she also has 2 little guys via a surro mom in CA. Those little boys are so stinking cute!! Their mom was nice enough to respond to my message on FB asking a few questions, she answered them and some more. She even gave me her # and said to call anytime. Im learning that this "surrogate" community is very welcoming and very close knit. Having her in my moms life has helped my mom to understand it all which is awesome, I believe she was put into my moms life for a reason. 

At church a few weeks ago, the Pastor stated that God put special people on this earth to carry out duties for him, that someone somewhere is depending on you. It all makes sense, J & B need me and in reality I need them.

possible match ????

The conference call was awesome, went perfectly!  I was SO so nervous and I just know my voice was trembling at the beginning lol. The couple is perfect, they share the same views as us pertaining to all aspects of surrogacy, they have great jobs and are very intelligent, have a great support system and seem like all around wonderful people. the intended father said to me that they saw tons of surro moms profile but once they saw mine they knew I was the one. That made me feel SO good :)  I gave my go ahead and now we're waiting on theirs. 

I feel really really good inside.
