But great things happen all at once.

The first, and probably the most major, is that my father is FINALLY on board with this project. We've been on a "don't ask don't tell" basis for a matter of months. He just has such a hard time grasping that this baby won't have any biological relation to him. He always wanted a son... and then a grandson... and got neither. So he's terrified this will be a boy, an heir, and I'm just going to "give it away."
Well yesterday he FINALLY came around. We talked about the surrogacy, and specifically about this match, for almost an hour. It really makes my heart happy. It makes me feel so good to now have 100% support. And I think little buds of pride are blossoming in his heart too. Which is good. I think this is something to be proud of.
More great things? Our match meeting was APPROVED. So we will be traveling back to Los Angeles on Friday the 26th to meet this amazing couple. I talked with the GG team yesterday about travel arrangements and flights. I expect to have some kind of ticket information later today. WAHOO.
I've been thinking a lot about what first impression I want to make. I have already ordered a little token to give the couple. I OK-ed it with the staff at GG, and I'm told I even provoked a few tears with it. :) Not that I like to make people cry.... but that made me feel good. I've already got my match meeting outfit picked out. But I might need new shoes... any excuse, right?

So lots of good things. All at once. I find myself missing grandma desperately these days. I wish I could physically hear her cheering me on as opposed to only feeling it in my heart.
