Another season has passed. A very merry and joyous Christmas to my beautiful surrogate families. I love you all so much!
HA! Lets see how many google hits that’ll bring in, lol! Today we went and toured the Vigeland Park in Oslo, a truly amazing giant art exhibit. As a decently repressed American, the thought of public art that contains nudity is one the boggles the mind. Oslo is COVERED in art, each and every street corner has something amazing to look at, and Vigeland Park is a highlight of the area. Nekkid people everywhere, folks. Statue after statue, display after display, this park is covered corner to corner with stunning pieces of art mastery, all showcasing the beauty of the body and detailing man through all his phases and ages. Add clothing and no one would think twice about anything they see. Take the clothes off and every American in the area will turn purple in embarrassment, many of them frowning and shaking a disappointed finger. But Oslo? And the sweet folks who call this place home? They just see the art for what it is; a stunning representation of humanity and all the beauty therein.
But nekkid people are still funny to me 😉
Had a great time photographing the ladies and their Pappa here at the park, there were giggles all around and a fun time had by all.
I brought the girls Light Brights from home, something they’d not heard of before. Watching their little fingers play with the toys I played with myself when I was tiny was VERY cool.. they’re just lucky I let them play with them at all! I pulled it all out and began a demo that very nearly became me just playing with the dang thing all by myself, lol!!
There’s a good chance I was *the* most irritating tourist in Oslo today.. there was nothing I didn’t consider for a photo! The girls went off to Kindergarten this morning and Petter took me on the ultimate tour. Oslo is AMAZING. It is insanely rich with art, there’s a sculpture or statue on every corner. Even their buildings are art, it’s just intense to be surrounded in this much attention; everything is designed to attract notice. Also, naked people. Not live people, but good grief are there a TON of nekkid statues around here! That’s a post all in it’s own, I was just all agog at how uptight the good ol’ US of A now seems and at how normal, relaxed and liberated Oslo is. It was a good thing.
Akershus Fortress was really neat to see, though next time I find a wide angle lens. Having grown up in Central Oregon and done VERY little travel in my life, I’ve not had a chance to see history like I was exposed to today. I saw ruins that were hundreds of years old ( footprints from buildings waaaay back in the Viking days) and buildings that were older than my entire home town. It was just a WHOA kind of day.
A kiss I found in my e-mail this morning!
The men in the family lounging by their new pool in Dallas… yes, they’ve moved!!! I’m scrambling like crazy to figure out how I can manage a quick weekend visit down to see their new house and visit the little tubba-love for a bit. I miss them all!!
Just a cutie pie pic from a few months ago. Isn’t he just the most beautiful little boy?? That FACE!!! He got some more pro pics taken by Kimberly Teichrow when she was down visiting, the official photographer of Mr. Giddings, future president. Hopefully I’ll be able to weasel out some permission to share a few here, he is just SO adorable!!
She is a 36yr old CRNA (certified registered nurse anesthetist)
He is a 34yr old Graphic Designer
They live in Portland, Oregon and are seeking a surrogate. Preferrably experienced but they are pretty open to the “right” match. Three years ago She found out she had cervical cancer and had a hysterectomy. They harvested eggs cause they weren’t sure if they were taking her ovaries or not, they didnt. Her sister was going to be her surrogate, the day before their first RE appointment her sister found a lump on her breast that turned out to be cancer. So her sister had a double mastectomy.
They are a wonderful fun loving, easy going couple that is looking for the perfect match. They love the outdoors and are very active, they have no kids currently but want kids very much. They would reduce from 3 to 2, which I ( the submitter) am not personally comfortable with.
They really are a great deserving couple. Having your own insurance would be a big plus. Their eggs are ready to go and they are hoping to get things rolling as soon as possible.
They prefer to go independent and avoid the hassle of an agency. They prefer a surrogate that lives closer to them or at least near the west coast. So if you know anyone or you are interested, comment or message me and I will get you their contact information.
Thank you a million times over!
I’m trying to help my friend out and am also open to any surrogates in general to match but this mom wants to start soon.
Single IM and her 2 year old son in Austin, TX are looking for experienced or first time surrogate in Colorado or Texas area.
Has frozen embryos in Austin.
Mom is a business owner and is looking for a personal relationship with their surrogate.

One very special little man just turned one! Jaymee and Matt very generously flew me in over the weekend to participate in TomFest 2011, an amazing smorgasbord of fun complete with custom TomFest cups and a bouncy house. That little dude is so loved!! It was a great visit and in true Sabrina fashion I forgot my camera at home. Luckily Jaymee thought of everything and flew in Kimberly, Tom’s official photographer, to document the whole weekend. I can’t wait to see ( and share!) some of the images! It does NOT seem like it’s been a whole year! ( but then again… it seems like a lifetime ago…)
