I have a 9am, phone interview with an agency. At this point I am not sure which was is easiest. Indy or agency. I think I would like to go indy because its more flexable, then I get scared and say well, maybe an agency is best. Who knows... I will just see what happens... I am a little nervous. I have no idea what to expect, but I really can't wait to just see where this all takes me. It seems that things have been coming together lately and I am happy about that! Look for an update later this week!!! :)
I recieved an email tonight from potential IP's! They live about 30 minutes from me. It could be so wonderful if things worked out with them. They would be close and could be a big part of the pregnancy and be here for the delivery without having to travel and take time off work! They seem like such nice people so far in the few emails we exchanged tonight. I am excited to see where things go! What a great way to end the weekend! :)
I got an application today from an agency... 13 pages long! Talk about in depth information! I am excited to get it filled out and sent back... I feel like things might actually be moving forward. I feel like maybe I might get somewhere. They know alot of my details already, the things that have kept other agencies from wanting me, and kept me from going Indy. So I am excited! I will hopefully start working on that over the weekend and get it sent in on Monday morning! I need to find a family picture(s) to send in with it! I hate pictures, but will try to dig some up!
I was contacted by someone needing a GS... after telling him more about myself he said needed some time to talk things over with his wife and think about things and would get back to me, so we will where that goes...
An agency also contacted me and although I had decided to go indy, after little responce I gave her some info about me as well, so we will see where that goes. She didn't seem phased that I didn't have health coverage.
I am excited about these new prospects. We will see where things go. :)
I am still on the search! I posted an ad to become a GS. I had my first response to it this morning. We will see where that goes. A few agencies have sent me some info- so thats not out either, I just feel like I might enjoy the experience when its not as structured and you can kind of make up your own rules with your IP's. As I said I am a little nervous about doing it without the agency, because I don't know what to expect. I am so excited about this... I think that this could be a wonderful journey...
Whats next? Where do I go from here? Its amazing how much more to this there is than meets the eye!!! Agency or not? I would love to save a family some money by not using an agency, however I am a little worried about not using one, because I have no idea what I am doing and at least this way an agency would be there to walk me through it. With an agency I need to loose some weight. I am working on that part... Going to the gym a few times a week, just waiting for my body to catch up. I guess in the mean time I am just looking and reading and listening to what others have been through, and what they enjoyed most. I am so excited to do this. I think that a transfer around Christmas would be such a wonderful Christmas present. That leaves me about 5 months to be matched and cycle and all that good stuff... so we will see...I am looking forward to an amazing journey helping create a family for someone!!!
Today is day one... Day one of becoming a stork. I have decided that I want to help someone have a baby. I love being pregnant... I enjoy most every part of it and as my life doesn't allow me to have any more of my own babies right now, this is what I want to do... I want to help someone else have a baby, become a family... I want someone else to know what its like to hold a baby in their arms and just feel that special bond.
Where do I go from here? I have decided that I want to do this without an agency. This will save a family some money. Since I am doing it this way... I guess its going to take some time to figure things out. I am in no rush, I want to find the perfect IP's and just let everyone enjoy the experience...
So here it goes... I will blog to keep myself up on things, and to share this with others as this journey continues!!
