Makes my Monday
This is our former neighbours, Danie and Lasca who paid us a visit last weekend to tell us huge news! They have since moved to Stellenbosch in the Cape but we keep in contact. They have had 11 unsuccessful fertility treatment procedures and have opted to enter the adoption roll. They got the surprise of their lives when her sister informed her in January on her birthday (which she shares with The Little Miss) that she will be willing to be a surrogate for them (she has 3 kids of her own and falls pregnant with great ease). She phoned me today to tell me that the procedure will take place mid April. We are hoping and praying for twins. I am just so happy for them - they are such great kid's people and our's love them. This just makes my Monday! Please pray for a successful pregnancy - they so deserve it.
I have a little storey to add - the moment we saw we were pregnant with twins, my first, shocked reaction was "maybe we can give one to Danie and Lasca?" Off course I was not serious, but she just heard the day before that her IVF was unsuccessful again, so it was so much in my mind how lucky we were and how much she would love a child.
For some more bright Mondays visit Cheryl at Twinfatuation .
