IComLeavWe Intro

Hey, welcome if you're here for IComLeavWe!  Or if you're not.  Whatever.  New or old friends, feel free to jump in and have a look around.  Short story is that I'm a dissertating Ph.D. in biology student (graduation in May), mama to a first grader, surro-mama to two kiddos, egg-mama to three babes, and wife to Dwight.  Long story can be found in the archives, or just ask questions you want the answers for. 

I can't wait to read some of the great blogs visiting here from Stirrup Queens, because your stories are always amazing and inspiring.  Women and men who go through infertility and/or alternative family building are so strong that I can't even believe it.  You are my heroes.  To love a child that much before they're even conceived?  That takes guts.  And the future is better because of the self-confident children that you so thoughtfully raise.  Thank you.  You humble me.
