This morning I woke up with sore eyes and a sore head. I had been crying for 12 hours straight last night. . . and just when I thought I couldn’t cry anymore I have tears running down my face while I’m writing this.
On January 9, I received a phone call that no women should ever receive.
“Hi Melissa, just a courtesy call to let you know that today your embryos will be destroyed and we just wanted to double check that you still want to go ahead with it, you actually have 4 healthy and screened embryos that will grow into healthy children,” I was told.
And my response: “Yes I’m very aware what I went through to create them and I did so with every intention to bring them into this world, but my ex-husband said no to me using the embryos and without his permission, I cannot use them.”
