Match Made

We have an egg donor.

We received the profile last week, sat with it over the weekend and accepted it today.

As I've mentioned previously, our clinic's donor program is strictly anonymous so the information we have to go on is pretty minimal. She is in her mid-twenties and very healthy and her family medical history is outstanding. We do have slightly more detail than that, but I don't think I'll be posting it here. The donor program coordinator (who has met her in person) says that her body type and general appearance are a good match for mine, though we would never be mistaken for one another.

That's all I need to know.

This is so surreal. I feel like I'm living in a sci-fi novel.

No News

We still have not heard from the clinic about donor profiles. Haven't even heard anything about WHEN we might hear something. Just waiting. Impatiently. Tap, tap, tapping my fingers...

Tripped and fell headlong into the deep, dark, I'm-Going-To-Be-40-In-A-Month hole this week. It's been a rough week. I'm going to refrain from spewing the full depth of the darkness here. Suffice it to say, it's not good.
