and the ball is rolling

So, I'm officially matched! Johnathan and I had a conference call with the intended parents and the coordinator from the agency on Saturday the 28th. It went as well as a call like that could go. They always feel a bit more like an interview than anything else. I was totally unprepared for the whole "tell us about yourself" portion of it. After the four of us giving a brief biography we got to the nitty gritty questions. It is vital that everyone is on the exact same page, no, paragraph about things like abortion, reduction, and other such touchy subjects. Once that is all out in the open, we were free to ask questions about how the relationship between us and them would go. It seems that it isnt going to be a butterflies and rainbows type of deal. They dont want to go to any of the appointments, but they do want contact with me throughout the pregnancy. She would like to be in the delivery room, but he is undecided. I'm glad that they were HONEST about the way they wanted things, rather than the whole "oh, we'd love to go to as many appointments as we can, blah blah blah..."

So, to conclude the call we were all told to think about the discussion and decide if we'd like to move forward with this as a match. I waited until Monday to email the agency, but the intended parents had made their decision within 10 minutes of ending the call. They couldnt wait to let our coordinator know that they liked me, which is a bit of an ego stroke for me.

Anywho, I'm writing this as I'm scanning my OB and fertility records from the last surrogacy. I got the contact information for the fertility center we'll be using. I greatly hope they dont require me to do a mock cycle, the fewer injections the better! We also are sending in our background check forms, and we have to have a social worker come and do a home visit. That's just going to have to wait for a couple weeks, my house is a wreck right now since we're moving on the 12th.
