"PATIENCE IS THE COMPANION OF WISDOM"
BLOG UPDATE TIME!
So it's been about a month since we got the medical approval, the legal contracts done and the psych evaluations done! Signed, sealed, delivered! ✔️
Shannon has been doing awesome drinking her beet juice, eating pineapple cores and getting her body at its absolute best for the embryo transfer! "Clean eating" (with the occasional slice of pizza of course!)
It has definitely been somewhat hard for Joe and I to patiently wait for this process to happen because we are so excited! It's a bit of a tough season with all the babies at pumpkin patches or in Halloween costumes because it does make us miss Everest Valor so much but we know we will have a sweet little one to dress up next year!
Right now Shannon is being watched closely by doctors to get everything JUST RIGHT from her lining to her bloodwork, which usually takes about 3-4 weeks before take off. That means we will have a turkey baby and probably be doing the embryo transfer (meaning putting our fertilized egg inside of her) right around thanksgiving or slightly after. Gobble gobble!
As for us, we are just staying optimistic, prayerful and preparing emotionally for the excitement of the pregnancy! I personally am getting my heart and mind ready for the ups/downs and thrills of surrogacy. I have some work to do before this special babe comes! #hardworkingirl #godismystrength
On another note, we definitely have our names picked out!!! For the boy it's definitely:
JUSTICE KANE (Kane means warrior)
For the girl:
I believe that these names have a powerful meaning and these young sweethearts will grow up to be life changers, whichever embryo God decides!
We still want to thank all the people who donated so much! We have a long way to go and if you are touched by our story or want to hear about it from the beginning, the link is as follows:
RIP ALWAYS TO OUR SWEET PRINCE IN HEAVEN:

With the divorce rate at 50%, that means many blended marriages and "step" children to follow..Someone needs to voice this! It's tough! Nitty gritty! Hardcore and without exception of blame! This blog is to not just inform but solidify how difficult, awkward and how severe the power struggle can be as a "step-parent"
