Please describe each of your journey's in as much detail as possible.
My first journey was super laid back. We talk mostly through text. We weren't super close, but we do stay in contact. Now my second journey was completely different. Both parents are super involved. They text me all the time to check up. They came for the embryo transfer. We had dinners a few times together. They even came for a few of my appts. It was so amazing. Now they want me to do another journey for them. We are all super close now.
