The Fork In The Road

June 5, 2013

“Turn left at the fork in the road”

Which way is left? Adoption… or Surrogacy????

This crazy road trip called INFERTILITY has somehow left us with no map or directions but two frozen embryos from a surprise IVF almost three years ago that my scary uterus can’t grow for nine months. [Wow, that’s a lot of numbers for one sentence]

We’ve spent the last YEAR AND A HALF in LIMBO waiting to see if my docs would clear me to TTC (in any fashion). We were working towards a May FET that got postponed to June and then cancelled entirely. Stick a fork in my uterus – she’s done.

But… we still have embryos from that surprise IVF. Having them makes this decision a bit easier.

What makes it even more of a no brainer is that we’ve received an offer from a potential gestational carrier. [Yes, this is why I have not been freaking out and spewing more vomit lately. And, Yes, I’ve been holding out on you.] I believe it’s a sincere and viable offer. There’s been no paperwork or medical/psych exams or anything. We haven’t signed on with any agency.

There’s just this INCREDIBLE offer on the table made by an AMAZING woman. [And an opportunity to end this infernal Limbo]

A chance to give life to my embabies. Life they want badly. Go check them out at @BunSeekingOven. My kids are hysterical. 😉
