I have spent hours reading and researching today. (This on top of the YEARS of research, reading and praying I've already done.) After a few conversations with my husband and new surro-pal Jeni (aforementioned blogger-queen) I have made a few major decisions. Cue quirky theme music ...press play and read on....
I will be filling out my second round application with Growing Generations Agency tomorrow. Sending it in, and waiting for approval. Once I get it, I'll be flown to California for my mental and medical screening. Once I get that all cleared, I'll be pairing with my.... drum roll... INTENDED PARENTS. It could all happen inside of 6 weeks.
Now, not all first "matches" are the ones you will ultimately end up working with, but if all goes swimmingly I will be right on track for my first transfer and possible pregnancy in MAY.
If you know me at all, you know why that's a big deal. I conceived Adelia May 5th... and Emrys May 31st. (Yea yeah... holiday babies...)
Am I scared? Nope. I'm terrified. It's scary that literal YEARS of planning are now evolving into actions instead of just words. I'm excited, anxious and hopeful. It feels like maybe it's moving all a little too fast. Please pray that I can stay grounded and continue to make informed decisions.
---------For My Intended Parents----------------
I shared a thought with Jeni tonight about this blog. I want to post it here, because after I re-read it I thought it to be rather insightful.
