Praying and Waiting
We are waiting for the NEDC to send us our next donor profile. In an open adoption, they try to match you with a family that desires the same degree of openness as you. In addition to that criteria, for us, they are also looking for a family that doesn't have too many embryos, and for one that doesn't have a sperm or oocyte donor. This is our thinking...We want our next child to have the same opportunity as Gracie to learn about his/her genetic origins. Also, we are hoping for another successful transfer on the first try. (If all goes well, this will be my last FET. The NEDC has an age limitation, and I'm about to hit it!) If we choose a donor with 12 embryos, but only use 2; the remaining embryos will eventually be donated to another family- thus creating more siblings for our child. It kind of gets complicated. So, we're praying. We firmly believe that God orchestrated Gracie's entrance into our lives. I believe He will do the same this time.
