I'm cleared to donate! Woo-Hoo!! This is exciting. It will add $200 per month to our adoption fund, making the goal of saving enough to adopt that much easier to attain! The local center pays $25 per donation, and you can donate up to twice per week. $50 per week x four weeks per month = $200 more per month towards our savings! I am so excited!
I went in to find out what I would need to do to be cleared. Did I have to talk to my PCP, did he have to sign something, do I have to submit anything? What do I need to do? By the time I had finished talking to the guy there, and he talked to the doctor there, I had been cleared!
They require a basic physical on your first visit (bp, temp, height, weight, general health) and the next available appointment for that wasn't until November. So there is still a delay, but only a month! My appointment for my physical and first donation is November 15th. I am so looking forward to it. I can't describe how much that money will help us out in our quest towards having a child of our own!
