That is really wonderful Meredith. What a blessing you are giving someone. I feel the same way. My husband is on board with my decision. Any advice on how to get started?
For me becoming a surrogate was an easy decision for me. After I saw our friends struggle for seven years and I had 2 unplanned pregnancies I couldn't just sit by and not help. Once I had offered to carry a baby for her one final attempt at IVF for her before we started and she got pregnant! I was so happy for her. It was years later when my older sister became a surrogate that I thought why not help someone we didn't know. I didn't mind being pregnant but I knew after baby 3 our family was complete. To be able to help someone become a mom and dad is truly a mastercard commercial. This costs that much and this costs that much but the second the baby(ies) is placed in their arms is truly truly priceless. I cannot even being to put that moment into words. I have been blessed to be able to help 2 families and about to embark on another journey. I have made many friends along the way that are now like family to us and always will be. Being a surrogate to me means I get to be a fairy God mother now and then and make dreams come true.
Being a surrogate to me means helping begin or complete a family.
I have watched family and friends suffer through infertility. I have a desire to help others and knew that surrogacy was one way I could give back.
I have completed two wonderful journies and starting the process of finding the right IP's for my final journey.
God has truly blessed me in my own life and now my family is able to help pass the blessings on to others!
