This is the question that has loomed over me. It's diffult to be at a place where we are both so ready to be parents but arn't able to do anything to make it happen. Putting my "plan" in writting is probably more carthitic than anything else, and it helps me to feel like we are headed somewhere. So here is my "plan" in a nutshell:
-In Junevwe will be moving to Fresno for Alex 3rd year of med school, which is hospital rotations. I've been told that the 3rd year is harder than this one, and it will be good to have friends an family around when Alex is spending so much time in the hospital. I will graduate from in May of 20ll with my BA in Ministry and will decided when I get closer to that what is next for my education.
- The 4th year Alex will be doing "away" or "interview" rotations at hospitals that he might want to do his residency at. Since he doesn't know what he wants to specialize in yet (he's mostly interested in surgery), we still have to wait and see what that year holds. He will also have to do a international rotation so he can finish his MPH at the same time as his doctorate. Luckily, he will get 8-12 weeks of vacation, which is when we hope to start the surrogacy process.
It will be interesting to see how that pans out. I have so many ideas of how I want things to happen but realistly
