I'm matched!

Late last year I decided to kick start the process of getting matched for my second journey. The agency I work with was quick to find a match they thought would be great for me. Soon after sending in my updated information, my family and I had some personal stuff come up. Putting the journey on hold bummed me. I really thought I was ready and these IPs (intended parents) did sound like a great match for me.

As time went by, our personal stuff was mending, but I found myself with a new(ish) dilemma. You can read about it here.

Today I'm very happy to say... I am ready.

Shortly after my last post and taking time to really sort through my thoughts, I received news from IARC. The news was regarding the IPs I would have potentially been matched with late last year. They were unmatched! I'm a person who believes in signs and "everything happens for a reason". For me to be ready and for them to be in need screamed positive vibes.

On a Monday, I spoke to IARC about Dror and Guy's visit to Minnesota, had a phone conversation with them the following day and the day after that Jeremy and I had dinner with them. On top of that, we had Elliott's 3rd birthday and we closed on our new house. It was a whirlwind of an awesome week.

I am bubbling with excitement! Being with them was completely comfortable. We spent 2 1/2 hours together and the time went by much too fast. They are going to make great dads and I can not wait to help make that happen for them.

How thoughtful... Dror and Guy brought along a birthday gift for Elliott :)

Please stick around. I feel another great journey is about to be had!
