Cailyn's height and length are now proportionate (not that it really matters) and she falls into the 85th percentile on both. She is a big girl!

We had hoped Cailyn would be a Canadian citizen by now, but sadly, it looks like this process will be quite lengthy. We had thought about taking a trip this summer but will not be able to as Cailyn will not have a valid passport and cannot get one without proof of citizenship. In typical fashion, if I had birthed her myself out of country there would be no delay.
On Sunday I awoke to an alarming statement made on Facebook by a Toronto based lawyer. Here are the words that made me beyond angry:
I was so pissed reading this lawyer's so called personal opinion on a subject she knows nothing about. This also makes me believe that she is trying to drum up fear with Canadians based on her hair brained assumptions, thus, keeping her bank account full here at home. Of course, all of us who travel to India want the very best for our surrogate's well being, family and her life in general. I have personally heard stories from here at home when Dr's had to make the decision to remove a baby asap and then deal with the ill mother afterwards. It is very sad that in the related story that the surrogate did not make it, and all of us in our community mourn for her family. As much as we mourn, we know this is not the "norm" as we have witnessed first hand. I could ramble on about this for ever as I am so passionate about it, but I won't. All I know, is if I was the owner of the clinic (Pulse) in Ahmedabad, I would not tolerate such slander.
