It’s been months since we last updated our blog and so much has changed!

Quick Recap…

In July we transferred our remaining embryos in India.  This transfer was not successful (obviously!), so we closed this chapter and went back to the drawing board.  We had a good experience with our clinic and everyone we worked with in India, but apparently it wasn’t our time and timing is everything.

California…

Prior to our last transfer in India, we were introduced to a woman named Sarah who carried a daughter for some of our good friends.  Our friends’ connected us to Sarah over a year ago and she graciously answered a lot of surrogacy-related questions for us.  Fast forward to May 2013, we unexpectedly met Sarah in person and we totally clicked.  We thought to ourselves… “If India doesn’t work, we would love to work with her.”  Afterwards, we learned that Sarah felt the same way about potentially working with us.

When we found out in July that India didn’t work, we were really disappointed, but on the other hand we were really excited to start working with Sarah in August… “emotional roller coaster”… true story!  Sarah lives in California, which is great for convenience and our ability to be more involved during the pregnancy, and she is a perfect match!  We are so grateful for her and her family.

The good GREAT news…

We are five weeks pregnant and we are due on July 22, 2014!  It is still very early and we have some important milestones coming up (12 weeks is a big one) but we are really excited and we continue to hope for smooth sailing!  Please keep Sarah and us in your thoughts and prayers and send good baby vibes our way.

THANK YOU to all of our family and friends for your love and support.
