The One

I am very happy and quite humbled to report that after carefully reviewing and analyzing surrogate profiles, we have selected and formally reserved a lovely surrogate to carry for us! I can't believe I just wrote that - OMG, I am beyond excited!!!!!

For blog purposes, we will call her "R".  We know we shouldn't read too much into her profile and photos, but we can't help ourselves. R has a beautiful, genuine smile and sincere eyes. She describes herself as calm, quiet and understanding - hopefully, she can teach us the secret! Oh, and she is all of 5'2" and a whopping 112lbs, which will make me look like a horse next to her. Ugh!

Anyway, we have dreamed of this day, the day when we could say we've secured a surrogate who will be carrying our child. Not only are we thrilled, we are forever grateful. Thank you R!
