Lawyers

I just received word that we already both have lawyers lined up and ready to represent us! It's amazing how this all comes together so nicely, especially when working with an agency who has professionals that know the in's and out's of surrogacy!

For those who do not know this part of the process, we have a contract drawn up between us so that there are no misunderstandings along the way. It lays out everything from start to finish. I do not recall even referencing my first one, however, after it was signed! As long as you're in agreement to start, it is relatively easy to navigate.

The lawyer in Minnesota also draws up the PBO (Pre-birth Order) that allows Tommy & Hanne to get their name on the birth certificate and take home their bundle of joy!

Hanne & Julie

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

We have already shared a few lengthy emails getting to know one another and it is so very exciting! I have given Hanne access to post in this blog as well. That will be a new experience for me and hopefully you all can follow this journey together with us!

I have added a few "education" links for those new to the idea of surrogacy as well. Please feel free to comment and say hello on occasion! Hopefully we can keep it fresh and exciting so that you'll want to check back with us.

It's Official...



We are matched!

Hei Tommy og Hanne. Jeg er slik hisset opp til å stirre denne reisen med du !

Thanks to Dana/Jaime's agency, I have found a couple from Trondheim, Norway to carry for in 2008! They are wonderful on paper and I had a PC with the IM today over my lunch hour.

Whoohoo.... medical screening, cycling and shots are on my horizon again. Surely we're all nuts for loving this part of surrogacy, right? But oh, how I cannot wait to be pregnant again and help bring another miracle into the world!!

Just had to share or I'll burst at the seams!!

More details in the near future. I'm on my way to a second surrogacy journey!!
