We signed the legal paperwork and our 3 embies became our friends embies on the 21st.
This morning came a HUGE BLOW...In my email inbox, the original donor couple who signed all rights over to my DH & I sent an email saying they really wanted their 3 embies back. SAY WHAT??? After falling in love with their sweet 2 month old daughter (sibling to my daughter) they re evaluated wanting to have another baby.
They are not legally ours any more. These embryos have no legal connection to us any more. After explaining this to them, they asked that I be a go-between to them and the other couple to get their embies back. TOO STRESSFUL FOR PREGNANT MAMA!
And guess what? My friend & her husband ARE GIVING THEM BACK. WHY you ask, because it is the right thing to do. Because they could not live with theirselves knowing that they kept these embies from their biological father (egg donor was used). GIVING BACK THE BABIES THAT ARE LEGALLY THEIRS. Because that's what Jesus would want them to do.
I am devastated on many levels. I am sore & sick to my stomach over it. I am devastated that my child will not grow up with my friends child. I am devastated for my friend. I am devastated because I am a pregnant emotional WRECK! I've bawled all day.
I told the donor couple that in my condition I cannot be the go between & that they will have to contact my attorney who is also my friends attorney. Lord help us.
AND THIS is some of the heartache that goes along with embryo adoption.....Rough day...
I am just venting here. this is my blog to vent on. I don't want any negativity please....
