"Hi, this is Carol from the NEDC" she was calling to see if we were doing okay, and ready and willing to release our donor embies which we had on "hold" of sorts back into the pool for others to possibly choose to adopt.
I let her know how thankful we were for the time we worked with them and the great job they do and yes, we would like them to be put back in for a couple to hopefully choose to adopt. "Goodbye, have a nice day"
Then. Tears. I haven't been able to cry over all that's happened with our amazing and unexpected news this spring, and that's ok but it's just been interesting that tears haven't been a part of it. I went back to moping the kitchen floor, and they just came in an overwhelming rush as I thought of the massive undertaking our lives went when we started down the path of EA and how it changed our life.
So very thankful that for a period of time we had this incredible hope for a baby, and not only that but the chance to give a small life the ability to grow the way it is intended, in the uterus of a mother. We are trusting God with every part of our life and that means even in the unexpected turns our journey can sometimes take us! Praying that the NEDC continues to grow and thrive, and that someone else like us finds great hope in the chance to parent these precious embryos.
