My sweet Tom and his family are spending time in Kenya with the paternal family, and I didn’t expect to miss them. So, surprise. I miss them. The random little Facebook updates, the snippets of Jaymee-Tom life… I miss it. Can’t wait for them to be home in a few weeks.
Ava & Amelia mailed me some new fridge art that made me perma-grin for the day! It’s simple fun every-day-living stuff, and I love it. I love their daddy for thinking of me in mailing it. I don’t keep in touch like I should.
An amazingly fast and blurry three years ago, two princesses finally rested in Daddy’s arms.
Happy Birthday Ava and Amelia. LOOOOOOVE you!!
Goodness. I promise, the one the girls will get is not blurry and has words that actually match… do you have any idea how HARD it is to get powerpoint to embed a video & graphics & convert the whole mess to something you can actually share? Hard. But worth it, for *my* girls! Also yes, I am aware of how ridiculous I look. It’s okay, I know they like the song…
Love this. Love. It’s just one small step in the right direction… but think of how fast we could cross the finish line if we ALL took one step. There is hope for the society my children, bio and surrogate alike, will grow up in.
I went to Alabama for sweet Tom’s first birthday, and it was great! Great to see him and great to be seen. It’s been a year, but I know that boy! He’s a squishy ball of love and it was awesome getting a peek at the family I got to help create. More pics as I get permission to post them!! Some day in my lifetime I’d love to get all three families together. Maybe a Disney trip as a group in a few years? Something!
Fellow surrogate Danielle revealed her Halloween costume today……
Good grief girl, You make me proud! And for my readers, if you’ve got a minute… head on over and check out Danielle’s blog! She is carrying Identical Twin boys for her fantastic IF’s, it’s an amazing journey to follow!
While I fumble through life figuring out where I want to take this blog, I thought I might try something new…
This blog has been a safe place for me. A place to vent and share and learn and get feedback from my fantastic readers who have followed me for the last several years. A lot of surrogates, IP’s and average Joe folks don’t have a place like this available to them, so I thought I’d open it up.
If you are a person affected by the surrogacy community, be it a surrogate, Intended parent or potential intended parent, or just someone who has a question/concern/vent about surrogacy, e-mail me at:
I will post your e-mail here, anonymously, for you to get the feedback you need. Answers to your questions, sympathy for your vents, or just a connection to a community that knows what you’re talkin’ about. Include a tag reference for your posts so that should you make multiple submissions readers following along can connect your past posts to you.
Vehemently do NOT miss having a period. I do, however, miss the monthly lightbulb as to why I’m such a cranky achy bitch. Now I actually have to keep track of my bloat so that I know when I’m cycling and let me tell you, a monthly fat chart is NOT one of the new fun things to do.
