Good Things.

I'm going to list 20 good things because I should.

1. I raised my cat Diva from when she was 2 weeks old. She loves me. A LOT. She cuddles up on my lap and I hope the blastobabies can feel her love.

2. My husband is awesome and my IF (which he knew about when we were 17 and 19) has never scared him.

3. My vintage brownstone apartment is pretty bad ass, even if it will be too small for the twins.

4. One of my good friends overcame the most wicked ovarian cancer. Thank God.

5. I learned to do a back walkover at 30

6. I feel loved.

7. No Pudge fat free brownies are a good thing because you can make single microwave servings.

8. Sushi is awesome.

9. I got to be a dancer and performer in NYC for 2 years.

10. Summers in upstate NY

11. People watching and sopping up the energy in Union Square is my most favorite thing outside of

13. Our egg donor has made a lot of dreams come true.

14. My brother and mom are healthy

15. The black cat, Baby, likes me more and more as the years go by

16. Both cats sleep in a pile with us every night.

17. I like our full size bed because it creates more snuggling

18. I can drive stick

19. I like riding ATVs

20. There's always a little little little bit of hope.

Thank you for this blog. It's so inspiring! I'm so happy for you! We should always fight for our dreams and goals no matter what. I also can't carry a baby by myself. I was born without an uterus. There is no chance for me to get pregnant and feel my baby pushing into my stomach. Still I'm grateful there are places and people who can help us with our problem. At the same time this is really hard to find good agency or clinic. There are so many scammers, who want to become rich, using poor people like us. There are even women, who pretend they want to be surrogates and then they get money and dissapear. Unfortunately our family faced such woman. Three years ago my dh and I decided to find sm by ourselves. We thought the procedure will be cheaper in this way. We met with her and discussed everything. She seemed so kind and lovely person. After our first payment she was gone. She didn't answer our phone calls or mails. It was so hard to get back to search of another place to go. I was seeing deception and a dirty tricks everywhere. After our experience we decided not to contact agencies and especially search sm by ourselves. We were looking for reliable clinic with professional doctors and high rate of successful treatments. We decided to concentrate mostly on Europe. As India was closed, we were choosing between Russia and Ukraine. Ultimately we chose Ukrainian clinic biotexcom. Reviews were mostly positive and this clinic has high success rates. Though we had some doubts about their medicine, we decided to go there and check everything. Our concerns faded away when we talk to our doctor and program coordinator. We saw fashionable design of the clinic and modern equipment. And the most important we saw so many couples there! People all over the world came to this clinic for surrogacy and de ivf programs. We have no regrets! We are so lucky we went straight to this clinic. Our daughter Kristine was born in May last year. We celebrated her first birthday 2 weeks ago. Dear, I wish you and your wonderful family all the best!
