We were not included in the email distribution but have come to find out that SI has had an internal shake up, losing one of the doctors. This seems to have sent alot of us IP's into a frenzy or panic. Thankfully we have been contacted by the clinic director and all seems to be ok for us. Next steps..need receiver address for money wire, do wire transfer, hopefully get surrogate profiles, book time off work, get Indian visa, book flights and hotel, feel good about surrogate choice which should be made by now. So, just a few things to do in the near future! This weekend in Easter and its another holiday without a child. Its very hard to take these holidays even tho we have a life plan in place. I dream of the day when a holiday will be looked forward to or even enjoyed. Not that a child is the only thing that can do this, but after all we have been through its kinda worn us down. On more positive notes our surro friends are all chugging along and so far the news out of India is good. Like any pregnancy the 9 months is stressful with the blood work results and ultrasound reports. We are fortunate to have this thing called the Internet - where we can get questions responded to, opinions voiced and create bonds with people of the same challenges. Imagine going through this alone and in the dark? Winter is here again..don't understand the weather and how we can be 19Celsius one day and now -12Celsius with a light dusting of snow! I think David Susuki would call it global warming.


  1. Kerrie and Mark,
    I'm believing in God's promises that you will have many wonderful holidays filled with the laughter of children in your loving home. Hang in there (I know it's easier said than done), your day is coming.

  2. hooray, kerrie! I'm so happy your plans are still on track. you don't want anymore setbacks caused by doctors, you've had enough already.


  3. Kerrie,

    I am SO, SO, SO glad to hear that this isn't going to set you back any further. Let's hope Mother's Day of next year is the first holiday you can really look forward to!

  4. I'm so glad your plan is still in place.

    I know how hard this upcoming weekend is, just know you're not alone. (((Hugs)))

  5. Hi Kerrie,

    I understand how you feel and am really glad that things are still moving forward for you. Brain and I had to change our plans and will be in Mumbai April 13th - 30th. If there is anything we can do for you while we are there, please let me know. I would be happy to help any way I can, seriously.


  6. UGH...Snow! Don't miss that! Keep the faith dear, your little one will be in your arms before you know it! Sending hugs,


Say it loud and say it proud, we are listening (reading)
