Come What May

"I can't even with you."

That's what Dustin said to me as I handed him back his phone after reading the messages that our surrogate sent him saying she would like to officially "match," with us...cause I did it like Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge in the Indian song towards the end of the movie, I walked out like... you know what, like this.

Matching: The term used when a surrogate and intended parents agree to move forward with each other into the wild and crazy world of pregnancy.

So we're moving forward with her.  We're excited. Though I'm really trying to keep our feet on the ground.   I'm excited but just trying to keep my expectations low for now.  I hear a lot of stories on how the process goes for people, so I don't want to get ahead of myself.

On top of all this...I'm starting a work schedule to provide 24 hour coverage for The Weather Channel's programming of Hurricane Matthew.  Its going to be a long week/weekend.  Looks like the forecast has been updated and now parts of South Florida are under Hurricane and Tropical Storm Warnings.  Ugh. I hope people are prepared.

Time for bed.

National Coming Out Day

I totally didn't even realize today was national coming out day! We took a picture to mark the occasion.  A lot of people post and share their stories today.  Sharing their struggles and their triumphs over the hurdles, or even walls, surrounding the ability to live their truths.  Dustin and I have very different stories of our coming outs.  He's been living his truth for just about a decade before I came out to my family and more importantly to myself.  Coming out is not for everyone and today is certainly not meant to give you anxiety about coming out or not. You might find yourself in a variety of situations; from being a public personality, a conservative family, your own fears and so many other possibilities. Its not always easy.  For some, yes, its easy, you grow up in a family where you know without a shadow of a doubt that you'll be accepted for who you are.  We know, better than most, that its different for everyone.  Most of all, you do you, we'll be her

Week 24: Viability...

A lot has happened in the last month...seriously A LOT. "So why did you wait so long to post, Ryan?? "  Because I was busy!  Schedule changes at work, pushing hard to get our renovations finished, baby showers, renovations, much happening. Let's start with travel....I don't want to bury the lead story here. We went up to Wisconsin for our 21 week anatomy scan.  Dustin flew up on a Wednesday for the Thursday morning appointment. Unfortunately July is a big vacation month for my department, and save for asking co-workers to change their vacation plans with their families...I stayed behind. It was going to be hard, but I kept telling myself that its just pictures. I will have the REST of my life to spend with Beastie.  This is a cool appointment, but its just an internal photo shoot.  What really sucked was that they wouldn't be able to shoot any pictures or video in the ultrasound room.       Fast forward to the morning of the appointment.  I tex
