Lawyers and contracts

So I have realized that this is going to be a long drawn out process I think. I have my appointment with my attorney on Wednesday to begin the drafting of the surrogacy paperwork. This is one crucial step that must happen of course before we can be on our way.

But the embryo donation/adoption may be a trickier story. The lady in South Carolina wants to donate her 4 remaining embies to us and is still very willing, but there is alot of paperwork and such to get them here to Va Beach. Then yesterday my sweet nurse Bethie calls me and we start discussing this whole thing. And she tells me that a batch of about 10 embryos came up recently and that she is going to see if Dr. O will allow me to have some of them. She said it would be safer to use these embies that are local than to try to ship the others because things can happen in the shipping and they can be killed or damaged. Soooooooo the couple her that has these left over embryos has not yet signed the official papers to realease them to be donated. But the paperwork was mailed out last week. So all of this to say I have no idea what to do, but I am trusting the Lord to work it all out to His glory!!!

I will let you know what happens. Thanks again for all the prayers.

  1. I just found your blog through another (though I couldn't tell you which one...) Your post resonated with me as we are in nearly identical places (minus the surrogacy). I am also waiting for embryos to be signed over. I was originally told that they had been relinquished but today I found out that had not happened. I'm trying really hard to trust but it was such a blow that I'm having a difficult time. Praying everything works out for you. God Bless!
