the biggest phone call of my life

So I've been keeping a little bit of a secret.


No, not that crazy book that preaches if you think positive thoughts you'll get rich. A secret about our baby making plans.

Today, I come clean.

Back in April, right before my mom came to visit, she told me that she'd found a surrogate for us. A friend's daughter, who liked how she felt being pregnant - but didn't want any more of her own kids. SCORE! At the time, we didn't want to get excited about anything, since the surgery was still ahead of us. I needed to focus on one thing at a time, so we put off thinking about surrogates until June.

Now that I'd had time to enjoy being cancer-free and my birthday had passed, I called her over the past weekend and left a message. Tonight, as I left work, I saw a voicemail on my phone. I listened to it, and it was her. Our potential Easy Bake Oven.

I took a deep breath, and dialed her number. We got through the initial introductions and pleasantries, and then I nervously asked the question I'd been holding on to since April: was she still interested in being our surrogate?

She said, "Yes." SHE SAID YES.

We talked for another 20 minutes or so. She's great. And nice. And awesome. Did I mention she said yes?! For next steps, both of us have a bunch of questions. I'm going to look into an attorney so that we can get everything settled from that perspective. And, because she's in a different state, we're going to have to figure out that whole thing. The good news is, she's in Nurse Mom's state, so Baby DeFrias will have its grandmom close by while it grows! Wait...I'm getting ahead of myself.

But dood: we've got our own personal Easy Bake Oven!
