I hope this picture makes you happy for the weekend.
Big E's tail is blurry because it is, as always, wagging.

Have a good one and be sure to tell the ones you love that you love them.

When did my blog get all holy?
I am finding it harder and harder to keep the church out of my business.
I am in the early stages of collecting agency names to donate our remaining embryos. I have a handful of criteria. I want to be able to influence the recipient family based on open adoption terms and consideration of same sex couples.
Aaaaaand: cue the holy rollers.
These sites are riddled with religion. Seems they care more about "Non Christians Need Not Apply" than anything else. Some sites boast of being "Religion - neutral". But it is still there in my face: religion.
But wait. Wasn't I just posting it up about me and my new BFF the Catholic Church? Yeah, but sometimes I wonder what I am doing. You know how bad Dr. Google is when you are symptom tracking? Let me tell you it is just as bad when you go looking for more Catholics like me. All I can find are a bunch of narrow minded jackmongers who are Catholic and spouting anti IVF.
I don't have a bend to chose same sex couple. Since we are not one, I assume it might be less likely we would choose one, but I don't want that decision made for me.
I think I might be painting myself into a corner. Looking for a fight. I sent emails to all the agencies I could find with a polite one liner email: do you allow adoptions by same sex couples? The responses are telling.
Everyone assumed I was gay. Some agencies were respectful and encouraged me to consider another agency. One ignored my emails. Multiple emails. Funny, the response I got from that same agency when I told them I was holding, not buying.
I am tabulating it all and will publish my results. It seems like the way to avoid the issue is to put a Married Couples Only sign on the door. What bullshit.
How I wish I was not so combative. I cannot tell you how much I want to garb my babies in THATS RIGHT I AM A PRODUCT OF IVF GET OVER YOUR HOLY SELF.
I just don't know how my priest had the right to go so very against the grain.
