Busy Life

Where has the time gone? Even though I'm taking 10 months off from work to be a full-time parent, there's so much to do especially being a single parent to a 5-year-old and now an infant. But it's all fantastic and honestly, not all that difficult. It's just busy... and mainly because (1) infants require a lot of wonderful attention and planning time and (2) my son is in preschool, and active in sports and the arts. Plus exposing my kids to the world - no matter their age - is important to me so vacationing/travelling adds a fun component to our busy lives.

Given this, I sense my posts will become very infrequent. Of course, I will continue to follow everyone's journey - it just makes my heart smile reading about the successes, current journeys, and upcoming journeys of fellow SCI clients. Being a parent is a right that everyone has, and SCI provides that opportunity through its program.

Although there are rare moments when I ask myself if I really want a third child, I am hopeful that one day that will happen. If my Indian surrogate did not miscarry, it would be about this time that I would have started preparing for a trip back to India. There is some sadness when I think about that but I truly believe, what is meant to be, will be. Like many others, I look forward to reading that India is re-opening its doors to singles (and gay couples) so I can try again with my remaining embryos.

Until then, I have many things to look forward to such as my son's first day in Kindergarten and of course, my daughter's first steps, words, etc. Plus life is really awesome - great friends and family, and a very comfortable and stress/drama-free life. I am truly blessed.

So as they say, it's not goodbye but until next time. I will definitely be back WHEN plans for child #3 is in the works... and I have a positive feeling it will be with SCI again. Thanks to all who have been supportive and all the best to everyone! And believe me when I say - dreams can come true!

As usual and for one last time... thank you for letting me share this part of my world with you!
