HuffPo Huh???!!!



Well, thanks again to Jason from Stalking the Stork who surprised me and anyone who knows me with a request to write a blog post for the Huffington Post about our surrogacy and baby journey, as well as the Men Having Babies seminar in Los Angeles on May 5th.  It was quite an honor and actually a shock in the pants when the Huffington Post themselves sent me an email to tell me that my blog post was approved and published.

Huh? Wha? Me?

...but what was even more surprising is that they gave me a login and password for future posts.

Wait...me???  An official HuffPo blogger? With a pic and bio? This was just too much...you've got to see it to believe it...and as you WILL see, it's a huge shout out to all our blog friends who supported us so faithfully along the road that led us to our baby girl.

Needless to say my mother would be very proud if she were alive today. All was not lost on that private school education, mom and dad. But of course, I had a little help from my friends (thanks again, Jason...for editing down my wordy draft post and for boosting my ego a bit!).

Now if I only know what to blog about next. Ideas welcome :-)
