Well boy do I have good news for all my faithful blog followers. I know my blog has been full of sadness and despair lately- but it seems as if the darkest night WAS truly just before the Dawn!!!

So tonight Sweetness and I went to dinner with the possible surrogate and her husband. It was truly a wonderful time. She is so sweet and down-to-Earth. Her little girls are precious. We talked about everything and feel at complete peace with her carrying our children. She is a 27 yr old christian. No smoking or drinking. She has been a surrogate before and loves being able to give people a family.

Sweetness and her husband even planned a golf outing together sometime soon!!! How is that for a GOD-moment for ya???

The the BEST news of all came when we got home tonight. I sent the lady an email who has been praying about donating her 4 remaining embryos to us to tell her about our meeting and how it all went. And she emailed us back already and said that her and her and husband had already made their decision- and that they have decided to donate them to US!!!!!

I am so excited I can not even stand it! Sweetness and I are crying tears of joy and I am amazed at how the Lord has brought all of us together at just the right timing----- this must have been what He had planned all along!

So now the next step is getting the precious little ones shipped here. Of course there is a special process to ship them safely and securely to keep them frozen and not to be damaged. The biological mom said she will be in touch with her clinic Monday morning and get the ball rolling!! WOW WOW WOW!!!! I am just so elated!!! (Can you tell??)

For the first time in a LONG time- I feel like we are finally going to have the little family we have dreamed of! I must say a special thank you to ALL OF YOU who have prayed for years along with us for an answer to our infertility struggle. You all have helped make this possible- you ALL have helped get our prayers answered. I am in awe at the power of prayer!

Thank you and I will keep you updated as we begin this special journey!


  1. Congrats! What wonderful news and a wonderful day!! -Megan

  2. Oh, hun! I've been in your shoes with someone donating embryos and it's such a HUGE honor, isn't it? I still can't get over that Kami and Steve chose us to raise their biological children. It's quite the honor. I'm soooo happy for you! If you have any questions at all, I'm here for you!! One word of advice.....get a contract! No matter what, you need to protect yourself. I have a GREAT one we used for our embies with Kami and it was a great Christian one that I highly recommend (it came from another blogger). If you would like to see it, I can email it to you. Love you!!

  3. I was soo excited to read your post this morning! I felt just horrible for you after the bfn and saw how much your heart was breaking. I was praying that the Lord would show you the way! I can't wait to see all that He has in store for your future! xoxo

  4. Hey sweetie! I wanted to let you know I got your FB message and I'll respond to you soon! I'm at a toy show right now at a school and they've blocked FB. :( I got your message through my email but I'll be responding! I'm not ignoring you!! I'll give you all the tips and advice I can!

    Oh, I did want to clarify when I said "you need to protect yourself". It's really to protect all parties, not just yourself. :) I wanted Kami and Steve to make sure I wouldn't do anything back to them if the baby had birth defects or anything, etc. I didn't want you thinking I was just thinking of "myself". :) It's best to get a contract for both parties.

    I'll be emailing you later when I get home!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for you! It's quite the honor and you will feel so blessed!!

  5. So glad to hear the good news! Can't wait to hear more!

  6. This reminded me of a quote I read during my darkest moment just before the dawn...

    When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

    So, so happy for you.

  7. Trully an answer to prayer!!!!...So happy for you Heather:)!!!
