The contract has been officially agreed to by all parties!!  Now, we need to initial all 46 pages of FOUR copies of the contract.  Uh huh, that's right - 184 times!  Man, my initials are going to start looking "wrong" after, like, the 20th one.  :)  Initialling and signing the contract is on the agenda for now.  Then we send the copies back to the agency and move on.  I'm so excited!  I also now have D&S's contact information so we can talk, skype, email, whatever and they have ours.  The 6 hour time difference will be a bit of a challenge, but we will work with it!  I'm so elated to be moving forward finally!  I'm sure D&S are as well. 

Oh, by the way, since I haven't said it in awhile: Thanks for following along!  I really appreciate your comments as well.  Don't be shy.  Comment, ask a question or just tell me how your day is going!  :)

My IF (intended father) has been traveling this week so they haven't had a chance to have a final look at the contract.  They are expected to get back to my coordinator Monday.  Then, THEN all four of us can sign the contract!  Yay!  Then I get to have some medical tests done.  Ugh, yay...  Then hopefully the results are good and we can THEN move forward to aligning my cycle to their egg donor!  Yay!  Then it's needles and wonderful shots in my hiney!  Double  It's coming along.  Yep, sure is.  A bit slowly, but we are managing!

Spoke too soon!

I just received an email from my attorney on some counter offers to the contract.  He said I can deal directly with my coordinator or wait until he returns!  YAY!  YAY!  YAY!

No word

So there was no word from our attorney regarding the contract.  Now we twiddle our thumbs until October 3rd when he returns from his vacation.  Several people have asked me how the surrogacy is going.  I almost feel dumb telling them we are still doing contracts.  This is something that cannot be taken lightly though.  We will move forward (hopefully!) once everything is agreed upon.  Until then, have a great couple weeks, unless something comes up before then that I just absolutely have to share!  I just want to say I am thoroughly enjoying the fall weather we are having!  Love it!

And it's off

So we made the modifications to the contract yesterday and sent it back to my coordinator.  She will then forward it to D&S.  I'm hoping the changes are ok with them.  If not, they could counter with other terms or just plain say they don't want to work with us.  I'm praying for the first but have to keep in mind that the second could happen as well.  I'm hoping to get the contract part taken care of before the end of next week since my attorney will be leaving the country and not returning until October 3!  Maybe something can actually go quickly for once!  :)

So many ???'s

We had our meeting with the attorney to go over the contract.  Most of it went well.  There is one part, a major part, that has me just not feeling right.  The more I thought about it, the more my stomach just turned into knots.  I have to get back to him on it.  This may be something that could cause D&S to move on to a different surrogate...I'm hoping not...but I have to do what I feel is right for me and my family.
