Fully cleared for take off...

I went to see Dr. H this morning to have a breast exam done and to get my OB form signed for the reproductive clinic file.  These were the last two items remaining to complete my pre-transfer check list at the clinic ... we are now fully cleared for take off.  It feels so good to have all the medical screening items done - even though I did not anticipate any issues at my OB's office... it is just nice to officially be medically cleared and to be able to make some real plans for a future embryo transfer.  This is so exciting!

I just read a beautifully written birth story from a mother who just had a child through surrogacy.  It was heartwarming to read this story of the delivery of a beautiful baby girl and the birth of a brand new family.  Such joy radiated from her story and it was accompanied by a beautiful picture tribute to her surrogate.  Stories such as this just warms my heart and reaffirms to me why I choose to become a surrogate.

Surrogates change lives .. and although the stories that we help create are not always perfect, I recently came across an intended mother's sentiment that has stuck with me ... that even when journeys are not not perfect they still provide a glimmer of hope where none was before.  Infertility is so difficult to deal with - I am so grateful for my ability to carry a child and I truly hope that I will get to experience the miracle of life again very soon.

It's so awesome that you're so excited about the journey! When Husband and I find our Angel Surrogate, it would be cool if she were just as excited as us....;-)
