I'll Stand By You

Today's post is two-fold. First, it's to let y'all know that our transfer's been post-poned until after the holidays. Between the holidays, school schedules, birthday parties and well, just plain life, it would have been very tricky to try and squeeze a fresh transfer in and so all parties are in agreement that it's best if we wait until January for the transfer. That means we'll be due around the beginning of October. While I'm excited about getting to enjoy all that yummy holiday food with no morning sickness, I'm a little anxious about spending my last trimester in the thick of the Texas Summer Heat!! :) Then again, I have always wanted to wear those cute maternity clothes in the summer. ;)

In other news, I did my first 5K this weekend! We raised money for CASA (abused children) and I set the bar for subsequent 5Ks. Now, I'm not breaking any records here. I've never been a runner/jogger, I have asthma, I was sick and couldn't breathe through my nose and I barely got any sleep...yeah, yeah, enough with the excuses already. :) I finished at 44mins, 45 secs. Again, not setting any records, but the fact that I finished was an accomplishment.

On to my second reason for posting. On the SMO (surrogacy message boards at boards I belong to, there is a surrogate who will be carrying a sibling for a couple with a child named Hailey Kent. The Kents need all the help they can get. I can't put it into words as beautifully as this video describes it, so I will just share it with y'all.

I'm trying to figure out how to fix the video so it doesn't cut off the right half. In the meantime, you can visit to see the slideshow where you can read it.

I was just matched this week. Hopefully we can go through this all toether--that would be neat! Our hopes are to start injections in January sometime. Take care and I look forward to following your journey! :)
