They have been through 3 IVF procedures and countless other attempts to become pregnant, but my IM's uterus is unable to sustain these precious lives and I've stepped in now to try to help them.
They have a wonderful supportive family and very much remind me of many of the qualities my former couple and their family possess. I'm pleased to know that the extended family is very optimistic and hopeful for Taryn and JD in this venture.
I met my couple in April 2005 through TASC (www.surrogacy.com) and began chatting very quickly after doing so. Both of us had only been searching for a short time and felt although hundreds of miles away from one another that we'd make a terrific team. Soon we grew to be very close friends and talk several times a day as we gear up for our transfer.
I'd already completed my psychological testing (just had to have my home study updated by phone interview) & medical testing (saline ultrasound of my uterus, STD testing of my husband and I, and pap was up-to-date). Their RE is currently reviewing my records and David Cole in TX is drafting our contracts, to be ready sometime (we hope) this week. Attorneys have been contacted across the board and it is looking VERY favorable for a Pre-Birth Order (PBO) to take place here in OK. I've found out a new OK Supreme Court ruling has set a precedent for us Okies (I have yet to research it further...but, looks good!) We are ready to go with a tentative transfer date as soon as my IPs clinic in DE prepares a calendar protocol for us...we are projecting a June 2005 cycle.
