Phase One has been completed. Today we made the first official step in starting our family.
Up until today we’ve been talking, plotting, planning, debating, hoping, wishing, imagining, and waiting to get started.
But today, we took our first official step. Today we had Mary Ellen’s IUD removed. It was a painful and invasive procedure that was positively positioned as a “sustained gentle tug” but more accurately proved to be a needle in a haystack search followed by a holyshitthathurts! She took it like a champ and we got loads of good info and supplies for the upcoming months from our doctor.
Currently, I’m watching my wife take a much deserved afternoon nap while I wrap my brain around the fact that we’re really doing this. We are really moving forward with starting our family.
We are officially a go for Operation Make A Gayby.
