Moving Right Along

Things are really flying at a nice pace over here. It's hard to believe we only met this amazing couple a few weeks ago. Since then Allison and I have been in regular contact via text ,which is so fun! I know it's early to think this, but I just feel like we vibe like girlfriends. I enjoy her cleverness and admire her transparency. I', so excited to make her a mom!

We have our first milestone call today, in just a few hours. We'll talk about our next steps with the help of a GG mediator. So, what are those next steps?

First we'll need to get our surrogacy agreement in order. This process has already begun, and usually take a few weeks to wrap up. I will do a post in the next couple of weeks about surrogacy agreements, and what they entail.

Once we're legally bound to one another, it's baby making time. We already have a timeframe in mind, and I'll share the target date once we're a bit more firm in those plans.

And if all goes well, then we're looking at a big belly and a little baby around the end of 2016 sometime.

  2. What about traditional approach and ways of getting pregnant& Personally, I am not in favor of all these modern technologies of maternity - it may lead astray!

    1. Traditional surrogates, women who use their own eggs, do exist and can become pregnant with out full IVF processes.

      However, they will also have a biological link to the child, something that I will not.

      For me, thank link, and all that comes with it, would make surrogacy insurmountable. I am able to do this, easily, because this is in no way "my" child.

      I trust these moderns sciences, and feel strongly that if God didn't intend for us to have them - we would not.
