Pay it Forward Fridays — One day late again

I has been a week!!!

I have received so much! I don’t know how I can ever pay it forward enough.

The only way I can think to even begin to pay forward the incredible gift I’ll be receiving is to be the best mom I can be. I will do my very best to raise my child to be a good person. IMO, that’s the most important thing, the rest is gravy. Of course, I will also try to be a great “aunt” to my donor’s children. My child’s genetic siblings. I’ll try not to spoil them too much! ;-) And, not to toot my own horn, but one thing I can confidently say about myself is that I am a very loyal friend. I’m thrilled about the new deep friendship I’m forming with my donor.

Oh, and I also made a small donation to Cara’s (Building Heavenly Bridges) project. That’s actually a little selfish, I’m superstitiously donating in hopes that I will never need the services she is looking to provide for parents who lose a child. Bless her for doing this. Truly magnificent way to honor her Emma’s memory.

I can’t resist saying it again … YES WE CAN!

"A truly loyal friend" is a HUGE UNDERSTATEMENT!

We have only known each other for two months, and I feel like we could easily spend a girls weekend, "catching up".

xoxo -still OVERJOYED for you!

What more could your "donor" ask for?

You will be a great Mom and a fabulous role model. I keep a small magnet on the fridge entitled "Children Learn what they Live". Sometimes I need that reminder.

I am very excited for you!
