Contracts & Questions

We got the contract yesterday.

All 34 pages of it.


I started skimming it right away, eager to sign it and get this party started. My breath caught when I got to a part where it said "all parties agree that if GS is incapacitated, life support will be used to sustain the child until it is viable to live outside the womb".


I mean, yes that makes sense, and yes, it could happen with all pregnancies, even with my own DD. The difference is, I didn't have to read it, didn't have to think about it, and didn't have to imagine it. So I reread it quickly to make sure I agreed, and moved on.

The rest of the contract seems pretty normal. Anxiousness is growing inside of me now, excitement, and a little bit of nerves. We will talk with our lawyer, and finalize the signatures this week. Moving on quickly, one more checkmark on our journey to giving someone a family!!
