Some people just touch you...

A blog for today. I love this chick to the left more than almost anyone. She is my niece Haley.  I worry about her, I care for her, I love her.  I think about her constantly and always wonder whether I am a good influence in her life.  I hope she winds up reading this blog, and keeps reading it throughout my journey.  I truly love her.  We share a special bond, but as she gets older, more things will be hidden, and i'll just have to deal with it.  I dont like it, but  guess that is just the way it is going to be.  I guess I dont like things hidden, because I told my Dad EVERYTHING> We never hid anything from each other and that just made our relationship way better than my relationship with my mother.  BUT<>

Time Flys By....

It does! I am serious! I am getting way into this surrogacy thing. I am ready. I am purchasing a papsan swing today and slowly buying little things that I might use for my new little great neice. That way I can use them for my child! Good idea huh? Well speaking of surrogacy and baby names, and all that mumbo.... I have found some great people and some great support through this short journey so far. I cannot wait to pick someone that might be in my life and my child life forever and for them to be there and receive pictures.... and I am rambling... hahah
here are a couple names I have picked out.
Gabrielle for a female, I know its long, but Gabrielle Elizabeth. I love the name Gabrielle, I am half latin, so it fits. Elizabeth after my Grandmother, Godspeed. I miss her terribly! I feel she is sending me an angel. She truly is my guardian angel.
I also like Stella if there are twin girls! hahah
Blaine is the male name, Blaine Robert or Blaine MCClelland. After Bobby and His dad/Grandpa.
I gotta figure out a great lawyer here in Cincinnati, OHIO! haha ok enough of the update...keep in touch..

Been A Few Days!

ahhh...Life in the shoes of me is a very complicated story. I can never seem to be feeling the best I possibly can, I am always tired, and I always have sinus problems. I am just tired of being this way. SOOO... What am I gonna do? WORKOUT! I betcha I will feel tons better. I cant wait.
I bet you cant wait to hear the news? I get to go meet up with a possiblew surrogate mother. She might be reading this and so far, just to let you guys know, she sounds pretty awesome.
I dont know how many of you know the lengths I have gone to be pregnant, until I found out it could be possibly fatal if I do conceive. Sucks huh? Well...
not really. now.
God has made these little angels called surrogates to help out with my certain problem. These women must truly be angels! So thank you lil missy!

OH, other things... I am having a fun party this Saturday. That should be interesting. Although almost noone shows up every time. LOL. Why cant people make a commitment? hahaha

I just got done painting the kitchen. Brown. I wanted it orange boo hoo. I guess if we sell the house and move where we want, which is roomy, a ranch, and lots of acreage....I can hold of on having an orange kitchen. lol...

My whole upstairs is next after the party. Once we sell the Blue Rock (cincinnati, OH) house and Grandma and Grandpas house, we can get moving on starting our family. I am hoping for twins.

If this experience goes well, then we will try again for more children. YAY!

OH! I am going to go blonde! haha big change. My hair is still partially black, with tons of blonde and carmel highlights. I guess they could only fry my hair so much. yikes.

I want to look more motherly. I guess thats what you call it.

But anywho, I'll let you nosey people get back to your lives! hahah Love you all!

Introducing Briton...

This is Briton Mattox... My little cousin... He has a brother or a sister on the way...
Love is a very strong bond we share!  


Bobby told me not to get too overwhelmed, but I still want my friends to know what is goning on! We are going to hire a surrogate mother as soon as we sell our cincinnati house and grandmas! I will keep everyone posted. I am getting started on interviewing potential mothers. If you know ANYONE that is interested in being a surrogate for me, please let me know. Here are the requirements...

Age: 24-39
kids: at least 1 successful pregnancy with no complications
(i would like her to at least have 3 kids, but not a must)
(would also like for her to have been a surrogate once at least, but not a must)
Is loving and caring and understands that this will be a child without her DNA, and will be legally ours not matter what.
Also must be willing to enter into a contract.
Must have all set fees ready to go over.
Must be ready to include me in all doctors visits and special moments of the pregnancy!

Thank you all! I would love to hear your comments on the situation!

Love Always:


Journey to Surrogacy!

OK! Some people know and some people dont. Bobby and I are trying to have a baby and have had many unsuccessful attempts. I have 2 genetic disorders. Balanced Translocation and MTHFR. Here is a little about me!

kelly buffington
age: 26 5'3" 125lbsi have lived in indiana pretty much my whole life. i have an awesome boxer (my kid basically) and a maine coon weirdo cat. She milks off of my dog and acts like a dog.I am working on getting my insurance license, i model, and i am a phlebotomist at dearborn county hospital. Which is drawing blood. yummy. hahMy husband is Robert Buffington, he is 28 on oct. 27th. He is an insurance agent for Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio and we have our office with Hummel Insurance open a half a mile away from the house.April 2006, we decided to try and have children. The doctor decided that wih us not using protection, birth control and all for 5-6 years that he should do a semen analysis. His soldiers are great. So we started clomid for 6 months. I conceived 4 times and resulted in miscarriages all times. Heart breaking. I decided to call it quits for a few months, switched doctors because my previous one was a wacko. I have been with my new gyno since and absolutely love him! he tried the whole clomid thing with me and i never got pregnant, tested my TSH, did an HSG (tube check), and did the hormone workup. NOTHING> so he referred me to an RE> Dr. Glen Hoffman at Bethesda Fertility in Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr. Hoffman started me on clomid (that stuff is mean!) and provera to start my period , and did a full fertility blood work up. I was supposed to have an ultrasound on day 14 of my cycle to see if i had eggs developing. He called me in to the office 1 day before to talk with me. Of course he freaked me out. So I went into the office and he told me first off....many women go on to not know the problems concerning their miscarriages and problems. We know what your problem is. I have a balanced translocation with my chromosomes 4 & 8, which are involved with fertility. With that problem alone I have a less than 25% chance of conceiving. Then I have a dangerous blood clotting disorder called MTHFR. You can look up what that is directly... Some crazy long word. If I get pregnant and not know it, I will most likely miscarry, or could have a blood clot kill me, or rupture the placenta at any given time. I would have to go on lovinox shots or heparin shots every day until after 6 weeks I deliver. Talk about a headache. So 2.5 years later...from the beginning. I finally got bobby interested in adopting. My father was adopted and he is Columbian decent. I am half Irish as well. Bobby is german. We were going to put in adoption papers in spring, but I brought up surrogacy, and he was sold. I pretty much want to do this now. We are not going to be financially stable until we sell 2 of our 3 houses. We live in our house that we bought while we owned another house. We rented out our house in Cincinnati, Oh. Our rented got evicted and trashed the house so we are refinishing the house now. We might have a buyer lined up for that. We also inherited my grandma and grandpas house. It is in the process of a buch of showings and we got an offer on it. We have to get the carpet laid and a few other things done before we sell it. I am looking for someone that will be negotiable with fees, only because i do not want to be broke with an infant in the house possibly more. I would love twins.

So that is my story for now...I hope this keeps you all posted for now. I will keep bblogging with my journey through this exciting time!

Thank you all for your love and support!
