For years I have thought about surrogacy and now the time has come. I have just recently offered the use of my uterus to a lady and her husband who have been ttc for the last 11 years with no success. We met a while back and have spent a lot of time getting to know each other - we seem to be on the same page for the important stuff which is fantastic. They have 1 little embie left on ice which they would love to give a chance so heres hoping that embie grabs my uterus and hangs on for a 9 month long ride! The process here requires counseling over 2/3 months then for GS an application has to be made to the ethics committee - if they approve then great it can go ahead if not then you need to reapply later on once you've meet all their extra criteria. I am super excited to take this journey and to give my new friend what she has tried so long and hard for. I have talked to my girls about it (aged 4 and 5) and they seem absolutely fine with the idea, they understand it's not our baby (I am super confident in my decision not to expand my family, I am truly done) so that is awesome. I need to arrange my counseling appointments and we are hopeful that we can get everything sorted in time for the July ethics committee meeting (they only meet a few times a year.) Anyway that is where I am at in life. Oh and I start a couple of new jobs soon in addition to my community role helping pregnant and recently pregnant women - on Monday I am meeting with coordinator for a suicide bereavement support worker role, everything seems positive for this and then on Tuesday I start my coordinator position for a Teen Parent organization we have, I am super excited to start this role!
