We have a Date!

So, everything is moving along. Our donor has officially agreed to the cycle and is available at exactly the time I'll be in the California conference. I spent most of last night dreaming about arriving in CA, which days it would be best to be there and how we'll see everyone and, in my head, emailing my donor to say Thank You. I also spent some of my dream yelling at my MIL, so let's hope not all of that is predictive.

I really do not feel anxious about this process right now. I am learning to trust my intuition which indicated a real fear that the first donor would say no and that something was off with the second donor and, now, that things are really going to work out with this donor.

Maybe now I can spend some time on this blog writing about why we are choosing DE over adoption and why we plan on disclosing to our child (but not necessarily to our families at this point) and what we are going to do if we should be so fortunate as to have leftover frosties from this process.

But right now, I feel happy and even keeled and I am following the other DE blogs to see how their stories turn out, too.

Woo -- Exciting stuff!

I've found that over the years intuition has been my most trustworthy adviser.

So yeah, by all means -- go with your gut!

Really glad I found your blog, DE Mommy. As the mother of a young man who had testicular cancer and whose wife's two sisters are experiencing fertility issues, I feel I need all the information I can absorb on current child-bearing options.

Here's to great success for you with this one!

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. :)

Good luck with the donor and your upcoming cycle. Sounds like everything is falling into place. We may be cycling about the same time.
