At the time, I was about two months postpartum, still lactating (because I was donating my milk to another precious family), and I wasn't actively searching for another couple to help. One of my surro-sisters, Kelly, shared a blog link in one of our private Facebook groups of a local couple that were searching for a surrogate to help complete their family. While reading through their blogs (they have two), I had an INSTANT connection to this couple. I felt drawn to them, really. While reading their open letter to their future surrogate, I felt like the letter was written to me. It sounds silly, but it's true. And I just had to meet them! So, I left a comment asking if they were interested, to contact me. Cause that's what you do when you want to have someone's baby, right?
A few weeks later we met in person and fell in love. The connection is hard to describe--we are synced.
I'd like to introduce to you, the daddies to be: Robbie and Allen!!

Most recently we all went through medical screenings and had some things to deal with. Eric, my husband, tested positive again for HTLV and had to be further tested to find/prove that he is truly negative for the virus. We dealt with this last time, so we expected this hurdle to present itself again and knew how to handle it. What I wasn't prepared for this time around was some lovely scar tissue that was found on the inside of my uterus. I had to undergo a hysteroscopy and the removal of said scar tissue before I could be medically cleared to proceed with another surrogacy. I am happy to report the surgery went well and we hit the ground running with contracts and are now a week into medications leading to an embryo transfer!

A big thumbs up for a successful surgery!
Until next time...(And I promise to do better at updating my blog.)
