I cannot seriously believe I'm able to write this so soon after our devastating miscarriage. That wasn't even four weeks ago.
A woman recently contacted me through the DE/DS Facebook page and put me in touch with a woman in California who had four embryos to donate. We got to emailing back and forth and majorly clicked. They want an open adoption and they even live in the same city that DH and I lived in for 10 years before moving to Texas. We have a whole slew of other things in common and have just had a great time getting to know one another. It feels right.
And yesterday she said the magic words: We want you to have our embryos!
They are all day 5 blasts frozen in 2006. I'm giddy with excitement and didn't want to share the news until it was official but this is really happening! The attorney is busy drawing up the legal contract and the donor is busy getting shipping set up.
I feel so blessed, Thank you for the thoughts and prayers because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt they are heard.
There are not many people in real life who would understand me wanting to dance around on my rooftop with news like this, but I know you ladies do.
