It's All Sinking In Now - The Results



I have two videos today.


The first one kinda happened by accident.  I didn't plan on taping "the phone call"
but it came just as I was setting up my camera. 


So, I went with it...
(I tested on Tuesday and taped these on Wednesday.)
**********
And after the call...
(It cut out at the end because my memory card was full. 
 Probably a good thing.  It might have ended up being 837 minutes long.)
**********
**********
<3 SO much love
and many thanks. <3
 
 
I'll include more about testing day and all my crazy emotions in the past week  in coming posts. And be back after the weekend.  I'm gonna take some time and let it all keep sinkin' in. :)

I am sooo happy for you and Steve. I cried watching your videos today!!

I just love your creativity, honesty, your lovingness with the people around you and how you look at life in such a positive way (you make me laugh out loud many times!). I am really really glad for you! You will be a wonderful Mom! Yipeeee!

PS: (We had our daughter, now 2 years old, thanks to our gestational surrogate, so we too struggled long and hard with fertility problems).
