Crazy how time flies. Almost one month later, since my last post. Yes, we are still waiting, but with reason now.
I find this hard to post without seeming like I know what my IP's are going through. I definitely do not. I imagine they are frustrated, and disappointed thus far. They spent months looking for an egg donor they could use that matched a certain criteria they had. I know if it was me, I too would be particular as well. They finally found someone, really looked at her history, spoke with her and were excited to move ahead with her. As far as I understand she did not show to her first few appointments and when she did show to one, she was very apologetic but did not offer much reason. I do realize how scary this process can be for a beginner, BUT don't bother signing up and offering a dream without fully understanding what you are getting into. At this point my IP's stated they were already worried if she did pass the psychological exam she might be flaky to the key appointments. So with hesitation they crossed their fingers and waited to hear what happened next. Some might consider this a set back, I consider it a good sign...She did not pass her psychological evaluation. I consider it a good sign because now my IP's do not have to worry about if she will show up when she is supposed to or if she will take the required medications as prescribed, BUT most of all their most precious child/ren that they want out of this won't have certain characteristics that this donor was portraying and/or hiding! I am not sure how my IP's feel about this situation, I personally feel I do not know them well enough to talk about how this is making them feel (maybe one day we will get there). At this point I do not know what to say but 'I am sorry'.
They will continue looking for this girl with characteristics they would want in their own child. I imagine this is not easy, and I hope this will be the only bump in their road on their journey to become a family.
