I’m feeling very unsettled this morning and need to get some things off my chest.
At the beginning of this process H and I decided we would sign up for the support service in case things with the local couple didn’t go ahead. In doing so we met another great couple, C&J, who we have developed a connection with through email.
Yesterday we got news that J’s mom passed away unexpectedly last week. Their families were close, so I imagine this has been a terrible week for C&J. I feel awful for them. They went through a lot last year with C and her medical issues (that have now led to them requiring a surrogate), and now this. I did not expect to be so affected by their news, but my heart broke for them, and I have been thinking of them since I heard.
My worry is that we’re now going to hear back from the local couple and they’re going to want to go ahead. I’m going to have to be the bearer of more bad news and let down C&J. They know that we’re talking to another couple, but I still feel sick about it. I’ve made a real connection with them and really want to help them.
I really don’t want to let down C&J, so hopefully we figure things out with the local couple soon.
