HUGE, ginormous, amazing, wonderful blessing!!!

My sister and I have never been extremely close. Mainly because we have just chosen different paths in life. She is a little bit younger than me and has really had no interest in settling down and having the "American Dream", yet this year she got pg, engaged and bought a house. I worried about her being a mom as she has never really been around babies much at all. Through her pg and especially the birth of her daughter my sister and I have gotten much closer. I was there for the delivery of my niece and have been so thankful for the opportunity. My sister has surprised us all, including herself, and has taken to motherhood. She is an awesome mommy!!!

Over the weekend my sister got sick and I kept the baby for a few days. My sister ended up covered in hives and was terrified that it was something worse and she could not be around the baby. She hated being away from her!!! Today the doctor gave her the all clear and she came and picked up the baby. I was sad to see her go. Anyway, while she was here my sister told me that she really hoped that I got pg in December. She has never really shown much interest so this a pleasant surprise.

After she left I got a call from the pharmacy telling me that one of my prescriptions will not be covered my insurance (Estrace) and it will be $235, which is much more than I had planned. As I was searching for my insurance card to call and argue with them I got a call from my sister's fiance. He told us that they wanted to give us the rest of the money for the transfer, which is $3000. I could barely thank them, all I could was cry.

God has guided this embryo adoption/donation journey every step of the way. It is truly humbling to see how He is blessing us.
