Well I know it's been a while since my last update, and that's because I didn't want to post anything until I had more to tell. "Nothing new yet!" and "Still waiting." gets boring to read after a while.
So here is what has transpired so far. I got a call 2 weeks ago from my case worker who asked if I was HepB immune. I said "I believe so." She said that the family she wants to introduce my file to, lived in an Asian country where there is a possibility their embryo carried the HepB antibody but that if I was immune to HepB it wouldn't be a problem. Honestly as soon as she said "Asian country", I knew. I KNEW what she was going to say before she even said it. She continued, "I have a lovely couple (I will call them IF (Intended Father) and IM (Intended Mother) for privacy reasons) IF and IM are from the country of Indonesia who have been trying for a very long time to have a baby of their own. May I present your file to them? I think you would be a good match." I just started laughing. I said "No way..did you know I was part Indonesian when you matched us??" after this she started laughing "No I didn't!! But I can tell you that these coincidences happen all the time, and to couples that end up being great matches." I then told her that my grandparents on my dad's side were from Djakarta Indonesia, and then moved to New Guinea and then to the Netherlands where they had my dad. She said "They are from Jakarta!! and IF is German-Indonesian." I cant even begin to explain the goosebumps I felt. It was like God stood next to me with a smile on his face, saying "I love when I arrange these moments."
My case worker called me two days later and said "I told IF and IM about you and that you were part Indonesian and they want to move forward with you!!" I was so excited. Now all I needed to do was wait for their attorney to get the rest of their paperwork to my agency and then to me to look over. Once I approve their paperwork I meet them. They are in SF right now retrieving IM's egg for the embryo transfer that will happen later. At the moment we are planning to meet either for dinner or lunch in SF on Aug 3 or 4th. Jason will be coming with me to meet them. I am so excited that this is all moving forward. I will post again after our meeting to tell you all how it went!
Lots of love!
