Wow, everyone! We have been through a lot in the past couple of months. With the Holidays here, we are feeling loss and pain but with our surrogate present, happy and excited! Talk about hopeful and mixed emotions!
As with many medical miracles such as surrogacy, there are unpredictable circumstances and we can't do God's work. We can only have FAITH. He's been working on our hearts while working on Shannon's hormones! But things are finally coming together and a date has been set officially!
Dec. 20th will be our embryo transfer! Our sweet baby will be put in her womb and we can only pray that it will stick!!!
So, once the procedure is done, we will be given results within 10 days. Fortunately we have two embryos but it would be wonderful if the first one sticks! We still don't know whether it will be #teamjustice or #teameden! Either way, a healthy baby for our family will be loved and adored.
We will keep you all posted but in the meantime, please pray for our hearts and spirits. We miss our son and are continually seeking healing. With healing, comes power! We are so ready to hold our baby in our arms and be done with all of the losses!
If you don't know about the loss of our son, Everest Valor, please visit www.storyofeverest.weebly.com or private message me and I'd be happy to share! He was a wonderful and beautiful 1 pound boy full of sweet, innocent joy! He lived for one week and we cherished every second!
Thanks for reading our journey and sending prayers!
RIP our angel in heaven: Everest Valor Saad

This blog is to not just inform but solidify how difficult, awkward and how severe the power struggle can be as a "step-parent"
