Two weeks ago Greg and I had the opportunity to go to Chicago to meet our prospective surrogate and her husband. They were coming into town for their appointment with my RE, Angie Beltsos. We met them for lunch before their appointment. Despite being 45 minutes late due to every single traffic light being out because of the previous night's storm, we could not have asked for a better lunch. Our prospective surrogate and her husband were an absolute delight to meet. We enjoyed the opportunity to get to know each other and were hopefully that the remaining medical screening would go smoothly. Our hopes came true. Our prospective surrogate was granted medical clearance. We are so excited to be able to move forward in the gestational surrogacy process with this wonderful woman. Our next steps include getting contracts written and signed, as well as preparing for an upcoming egg retrieval for me and transfer into our surrogate. We are so excited for the journey ahead of us. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers and things continue to move forward.
