I had a family emergency and I had to go to VIRGINIA! I wont go into alot of detail, but I have inherited a 16 yo teenager! My niece "K" is coming to live with me. I hope I can be a good influence on her and help her get back on the path she needs to be on to become a productive citizen and respectable woman. On the surrogacy front things are looking good still, I have been telling everyone that I will get back to them when I get home (should be in a few days) and most everyone is ok with that, which is a load off my mind....Gotta get back to my emails now!

OMG! I received sooo many replies to my ad. It was amazing. Some I discounted right away for various reasons, but quite a few were very good candidates! This was soo hard. I initially said that I only wanted a candidate that was in TX so I can keep an eye on her. This stems from our last arrangement where our surro was several states away. Well, I received an email from a candidate that is NOT in TX, but she said she thinks she is a great candidate so I emailed her. Guess what? SHE WAS! I cant believe it, this woman is so great, we clicked right off! I will have to see where this goes but it is definitely promising...

Well after a loooong hiatus, I am back! I have been talking to my first recipient, (I will after this refer to her as "J") and she is wanting to do another cycle for a sibling. She asked me if I would donate to her again since she is not comfortable using her frosties at this time. I said of course. Well we got to talking and we decided that there was just too much drama and bad blood from the old clinic so we would try to find a new one that was comparable to them in price and stats.. I researched it and what do ya know? There is a clinic right here in good ole TX!!! about 2 hrs from me..WOOOHOOO! So I called "J" and she decided to do another cycle. She asked me if I had thought about doing another shared cycle so I could have embryos and I said yes but DH is undecided from the last talks we had. Well since then he has warmed up to the idea, AS LONG AS we take our time and get to know the new surro candidate before we do any transfers!!! I have already put an ad up on SMO to get started with finding a surrogate. I am so excited that we are giving it another shot. I have the most wonderful husband in the world. This clinic is the best. There will be alot of new things here so that is great to me, I love starting fresh literally. They have great success rates, and they only do blast transfers. If you are over 35 they will transfer 3 and under 35 they will only do 2, which I am totally cool with. Also since I am going to have a surrogate before the transfer this will be my first fresh transfer! I am getting my ducks in a row right now! More later!
