AND THE IGNORANCE CONTINUES....
"It sounds like a rip off scam from India;
You will get caught up in legal problems trying to bring baby home and you will expect me to bail you out;
The surrogate mums are from slum areas and you are exploiting them;
You two are really too old to do this as raising children takes 40 years;
How can Mel take time off work to raise children?;"
There were a litany of other unsavoury comments. Hubby got angry with his mother and told her in no uncertain terms that she either got on the bus and supported us or she is not to discuss it again. I chose to write her a letter and attached heaps of information so she could at least be better informed. I dont think it will make a difference as I do think this is an age thing with an inability to deal with massive change. It is also something she cannot control and she really dislikes not having some sort of control.
We leave for Delhi early Thursday morning ( less than 2 days now) so I am sooooooooooo excited ! It's 35 degrees celsius in Delhi so I am also looking forward to warm weather.
