In the meantime I am still very active in the surrogacy world. I have grown very close with a handful of surro friends online. We chat every day and keep up-to-date with each other's journey. I couldn't ask for a stronger support system--I am so, so blessed!!
This last month has been super exciting for me. So many "surrogacy" related things happening--I love it. I was asked by an Intended Mother friend (who lives close by) to meet up and surprise her Surrogate who was in town for a visit. I am friends with both ladies online so it was nice to finally meet the both of them. I am meeting up with the both of them again this weekend to spend time while "J" is on a 5 day bed rest following her (hopfully) Sunday transfer!
"F" and "J", I truly believe that "God Gave Me You'. You both are more special than you will ever know. I wish you all the very, very best in your upcoming transfer and I look forward to cheering you on on the side lines as you bring the little one(s) into this world.
Another Surro friend was flying into LA for her transfer and I got word that she was coming alone. Her family was unable to make it, and her IPs live out of the Country. I offered to be with her during the transfer and stay for the day to keep her company while on bed rest. It was an amazing experience being able to sit in the room with her for the transfer. I was honored to be there and so grateful that she asked me to be in the room with her.
"C", I wish you all the best with this transfer. My fingers are still crossed for you!! I'm so glad to have met you--it's like we've known each other since high school. I love our daily chats and so thankful to have you as my new friend.
Here is the goodie basket that I made for her to enjoy while
on bedrest--complete with pregnancy tests!!
We played around with makeup and fake eye lashes - FUN!!
And ended the *fun times* with facial masks!!
Lastly, but certainly not least! One of my Dearest Surro Friends received confirmation that she is pregnant with her surro-baby(ies) (<--I call twins)!!! I am so excited and happy for her and her IFs (Intended Fathers). Best wishes to them all!! I'm hoping and praying that I am able to make it for the delivery!! (well, in the waiting room at least, haha!)
Amy, Amy, Amy--If only we lived closer, is all I have to say. ;)
Love ya, Girlfriend!!!
Love ya, Girlfriend!!!
Well, that's my update!! Until next time--I promise not to go another month without posting. I think what is brewing in my "surrogacy pot" is going to get hot here pretty quickly, if ya know what i mean!! ;) Stay tuned!!
