Well this isn't that interesting. The recipient and I have been emailing back and forth, with info on each others family, trying to get to know each other a little better. Things are going so good with her and I! On the surrogacy front, the GS is on her way here from her state and she is bringing the contract with her! I am so excited that she is coming and we are going to be embarking on this journey together!

I received a reply from the couple! They were thrilled with the prospect of me helping them! They couldn't believe I was not asking for any compensation, but wanted to find out more about me and my desire to do this. We exchanged info and agreed to talk via phone. I also received the official email saying our loan was approved for the cycle, so all we needed was the surrogate to sign off on the contract and things were moving right along! I talked to the PGS (potential gestational surrogate) and she was thrilled that we got the loan, but wanted us to send the retainer to her ASAP, so she could move to our state and be near us during the pregnancy. I called to the recipient and we talked for a while, she is soo nice! She didn't have a problem with paying for the meds and we were excited to try to work things out with her clinic and mine (I was talking to a clinic in TN)

I answered the ad today! I emailed the couple and told them about my surrogacy situation. I simply told them that if they covered the cost of meds, I would give them whatever eggs were retrieved minus 5 or 6 for my hubby and I ( OK, I know I was naive back then and hadn't really researched the fertiliaztion rates and everything that goes with being an egg donor, but hey I was trying to help, and that's a start).
