Signed, Sealed, Delivered.....

...I'M YOURS!!!!!!!

Contracts are D.O.N.E!!!

I can now move forward in helping to create a family for my Intended Parents!!

These past few weeks have been so fun. I talk to the guys a couple of times each week, both via email and phone, and I am really enjoying getting to know them. Every time I get an email from one of them I have a perma-smile on my face for the rest of the day.  I love that we are on the same page with everything--it has made the legal process go so smoothly.....and quickly! Growing Generations really does a nice job at matching surrogates with Intended Parents. This could not have been a better match and we are all VERY excited to be moving forward!!

My son, Aiden, has been very curious of the guys since I announced to him that we are going to help two men become daddies. At first Aiden was all giggles and wasn't quite understanding why the baby(ies) will have 2 daddies and no mommy. He even asked if I would be living with the guys. I assured him that I will not. It helped to remind Aiden about our close family friends, Sue and Maria, who are gay--married--and live together with their children. He now gets it (YAY!!!!!). His next questions were: When are the guys giving us their (baby) egg? Who puts the egg in my belly? How is the egg put into my belly and will my belly be cut open? (THAT was an interesting conversation!) Can he watch the transfer? (OMG, so cute!!) And what are the guys' dog's names (they have two pooches)? So, so cute. He's all full of questions now....I love it. Last night Aiden had the chance to talk on the phone with the guys. He really enjoyed it. So much so, that towards the end of the call he started being silly and was farting. If you know Aiden, then you know that when he farts around you that means that he likes you. ;)

And I'll leave you with this......Word on the street is that I will be starting meds and injections NEXT WEEK!!! You heard that right people. I am well on my way...and I could not be more thrilled!!!

Very exciting! My 9 year old had a similar reaction when we told him about our guys. He quickly dismissed that part of it, and wanted to know about the "science" part. :) Kids are awesome.

Good luck with everything. My contract with my surrogate was finalized just over a year ago. It has been a long journey but now that she's pregnant (with twins!) it's totally worth the ups and downs and stress of it all. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and the IPs. Reading other people's blogs and the support I get on my blog really helps so use the online community for encouragement. I know I'll be cheering you on.
