Matching Update

Oh I'm so excited, I can hardly contain myself! I don't want to jinx anything, but I can't help but to give a quick update!! For some reason I feel that if I get too overly excited this will fall through, but I'm trying to think positive thoughts! 


So I got a call from my agency, Family Creations, this afternoon--they call about once a week to once every other week to provide me with an update on the match making process. Let me just say that Stephanie (my case manager) is so amazing!! She's the sweetest lady and you can truly feel how dedicated she is to you just by talking with her. She's the best--so caring and passionate about her work and wants to make sure that you are matched with the perfect IP's! Anyhow, back on track--Ok, so there is a new couple that is very much interested in me being their surrogate and (according to Stephanie) they felt "drawn" to my profile. And---get this!!! They only live about 15-20 minutes from me!!! THIS IS SO COOL!!! It's like this one is meant to be. Going in to this whole surrogacy adventure, I really felt like it would be best to match with someone locally (and my husband Eric agreed), but I wanted to be open to the possibilities of working with a couple outside of California as well. So, I hope this is it--I really hope this works out!! It's (once again) down to me and one other surrogate (who is a 2nd timer). But, Stephanie said this couple sounds promising (oh I hope I'm not jinxing myself!!). So, once again, we wait and see what happens.


As for the Hungarian couple, they are still interested, but waiting to hear from their doctor about the possibility of choosing a second surrogate (I would be the second surro since they have already chosen their first surrogate through another agency). So, still waiting to hear what their doctor says.


Well, that's it for now. I'm anxiously waiting by my phone for another update from Stephanie saying, "You've been picked!". Seriously, every time my phone rings my heart drops and I think OH THIS COULD BE THE CALL!!! Please send your positive thoughts and prayers about this local couple being THE ONE!!
