Hello Niki's friends, it's me "K" here to say hi!

I have to start by thanking you all for supporting Niki over the past year, I can see how you are all bonded and think it's grand that you have found each other, even if your miles apart! Having good friends can make a difficult time, more tolerable!

I suppose you all want to know a little about me, pretty boring really! I'm a 30 year old mother of two little boys and fab husband. I work in the medical field as a surgical technologist (the crazy one who hands the surgeon all their instruments and bosses them around ;-) I am related to Niki via my step-father (he's really my dad, I feel bad saying step) my father passed away when I was nine. My step father has brought me much love... and Niki! My husband and I really didn't spend much time at all deciding if this was the "right" thing to do, we are so appreciative of our crazy boys, and know Niki and J will be superb parents; and I'm healthy and able. I made my lists, pro's and con's, and my con's were so few (heart burn, getting fat) nothing which made me second guess my heart's natural answer.

So, here I am, already on birth control pills, done with blood testing, done with the SHG, getting ready for psych. test and the transfer, thrilled to be able to give my cousin a miracle, Myles a sibling(s) to protect, and Niki and J a good reason to wake up and smile each day, a reason to decorate for the holidays joyfully, and a way to feel as mommy and daddy as they deserve to feel today (being the proud parents of Myles), and guess what.....I CAN'T WAIT!

I'm so grateful for all your kind words about me, but honestly, it's Niki and J that deserve commending, they've forged ahead and not given up hope! So stay by Niki's side, keep her smiling and I promise to do my best to make her (and J's) dreams come true!

Until next time, Happy Holiday's and Peace on Earth!

Hi K! Welcome! I totally know how you feel and where you are coming from! I'm the GC for my sister, who was diagnosed with breast cancer this summer and isn't allowed to get pregnant. We just got our positive pregnancy test this past weekend and it's been an amazing journey already.

I will totally be following your adventure, and look forward to hearing about your successful journey. Niki and J are obviously an amazing couple, and you are both lucky to have each other. It's a wonderful amazing journey to take, and it's even more amazing when you get to do it with a family member! Best of luck to you all!
