What a Lucky Gal

Chris and Emrys
I was just checking my stats pages (seeing what you all are up to on this blog for the day) and noticed the activity on Chris' posts have been pretty high. So I decided to re-read a few of them myself.

Let me just say, I am so incredibly lucky to have a husband who not only is letting me do this, not only supporting me through it, but has become a PART of it. To read his excitement over this potential match and to hear his thoughts just reminds me of how lucky I truly am to have such a supportive and amazing partner in this experience.

I have a close friend who had it in her heart to join me through this journey. 
Her husband said no.
 And that was the end of her journey. 

(And I think it is kind of unfair that if a husband says no, so does the agency. In that way, it is giving the husband more power over the woman's body than the woman. But, I understand why it is done.) 

Chris could have said no. 
But he didn't. 

What A Great Dad! 
In fact ... Chris is the reason that, if God deems it so, our next journey will most likely be to help an HIV positive couple have a child. I would never have considered it. Now I am headstrong to do it. (Just not for my first journey.)

So here's to sportive husbands everywhere. Here's to my best friend. Here's to my partner. Here's to the fourth heart in this puzzle to bring a baby into the world.

I love you, Chris.
