The wedding was WONDERFUL! We opted not to go on a honeymoon, as we are moving in about 3 weeks! We are relocating closer to DH's work so I am house hunting and surrogate searching, not too much huh? I am back in the saddle, but concentrating on house hunting mostly. I haven't talked to the potential recipient in a while just an occasional email here and there, she is gonna get in touch with the coordinator at the clinic in TN to see what testing she and her DH needs to have done. She did send me a card for the wedding! She's so nice! She said she can wait for me to get things situated, with finding a new surrogate and trying to move, but we will stay in touch. I am so sad that I may not be able to come through for her now. I told her I feel i am meant to help them!

Well, our surrogate was supposed to be here yesterday, and she has not showed up or called... I can't believe it. You read stories about women taking advantage of people, but you never think it's going to be you..I won't go into anymore detail, but suffice it to say that things ended and not well.. She was NOT a surrogate and I am not sure if she ever was one... I was devastated and my now fiance' is alarmed and hesitant to move forward. I convinced him that not all women were out to scamm couples and someone would be there to help us! The wedding is in 3 days and my family starts coming in this evening.. I will have to put this grief behind me and start over with my search.... On a positive note the recipient is wonderful and I have decided that even though things have not worked out for me, I am going to donate to her still and since I don't need any meds, there will be no compensation paid at all. She deserves to be a mother and she is one of the kindest people I have ever talked to! Please pray for me that we will one day have our dream of another baby..

Well I talked to the surrogate and her and her hubby are on the way! SHe said they got held up due to waiting on their tax return, so it will be there at 2PM and they are pulling out after that. I am soo excited.. I was having some second thoughts and was thinking maybe we were being scammed, but it is all coming together. The recipient and I have been talking and have decided that since my surrogate is on the way, we are moving ahead so they can be prepared at the retrieval and be there with us in TN!
