That's right, you read it. We are moving back to NC at the end of February. Stephen was assigned a new territory after his company was bought out by another company. Since there are already regional sales executives in the Tri-state area, we are getting bumped on down the road. We will be moving to a different part of NC, which will be closer to my parents and a few hours from his. We have already bought a house and we close at the end of next month. Here is a picture of our new house:
We are really excited to get back into our own space. We have been living with my parents since July. While it has worked out very nice, we are ready to be back on our own. I am kinda upset about leaving my job. I found a fantastic school district that I have been working in since September. The staff is great, the kids are great, and the parents are supportive. I was really able to spread my wings a bit there and I enjoyed it.
Moving onto the million dollar question: We are going back to India in about 2.5 weeks. I am very confident that this will be THE time it all comes together for us. I've had good numbers, good scans, and a great, positive attitude. We decided we would pick a SM that was young, had two kids or more, and was experienced as a surrogate. Guess what! We got all three requests. We couldn't believe our eyes when we read her profile. But here is the best part, she shares the same birthday as our son. Once we saw that, we knew for sure that she was the one to help us grow our family. We are very excited. I am nervous to leave my son again because he had a tough time while we were away, but he will continue to go to school while we are gone and hopefully that will keep him busy. Also, I am arriving in India earlier than Stephen. He is going to stay behind until he has to be there to deliver his goods.
There has been a big baby boom and BFP's all over the place lately. Congratulations to all of you who have picked up your bundles and those who are watching them in the scans. I wish for you all a happy road with your children. Please keep us in your thoughts over the next 4-5 weeks. We have a lot going on and we want the best outcomes out for all situations!
Christmas Eve in our new pajamas ;)
