The search is on!

Last time I wrote, we were deciding between using our own embryos, an egg donor with Brad's sperm or donor embryos into our surrogate. I am happy to announce that we did choose one of these options and I know without a doubt that we are in God's will for our family! It is so exciting to think about what He has in store for us in the near future and the fact that my overactive immune system will not be involved this time gives me extreme hope that we are nearing the end of this nightmare.

The original surrogate that we were planning on using is no longer an option unfortunately for two reasons. She had the twin girls and everything was perfect but she did have to have a c-section. Our fertility clinic won't allow a surrogate to have two c-sections. We also would like to put in two embryos at once since we really want this to work and she isn't comfortable carrying twins again and who could blame her! These were her second set of surro twins so she is only interested in a singleton transfer. So we are on the search for a surrogate and she has been helping us every step of the way.

She invited me to several surrogacy Facebook groups that connect surrogates and intended parents. After only a few weeks I have already connected with a couple of girls who I really love. I've talked with them several times and I really think we may be on our way to a baby or babies! These are incredible women who put their own lives at risk for a complete stranger and it amazes me that they are able to give such an incredible gift. We would appreciate prayer that God will bring us the perfect person to carry these special babies. They are going to be loved beyond measure!
