 My Surrogacy Journey

When I first started looking for a surrogate I was scared and overwhelmed. It had taken me years of trying to get pregnant before I finally got pregnant, miscarried, and subsequently gave up on the old fashioned way. I understood that my body wasn't doing what I wanted it to, but I still believed in my heart that I was meant to be a mother. I jumped on my computer and started searching for alternative options and found myself facing a lot of very serious decisions. Reading about gave me peace of mind and soon I was meeting with people who understood my struggle and made feel safe and important. My life was important to them; my journey was important to them. Their ability to really see me and distinguish my personal needs from the rest of their clients finally helped me relax completely. Using surrogacy changed my life for the better. Now, thanks to an amazing woman who was able to help stand in my place to create my beautiful Daughter, Lainey, I am the happiest momma alive! I may not have been able to carry my daughter, but my surrogate and the company made sure to keep me updated with every new development of my baby girl so that it was never like I was a side character. I got to be there for every major development in my baby's life. From the first minute I held her in my arms and she yawned and stretched her soft, pink, little arms at me I knew that she knew exactly who her Momma was. I used to feel cursed for not being able to bear my own children, but today I feel blessed to have had the wonderful experience of growing with my child and her surrogate together.

    I'm happy to hear that you are satisfied with surrogacy and are blessed with a beautiful daughter. It warms my heart to imagine how surrogacy saved families who used to fight because of this problem. It's an excellent example of how technology improves our lives.

    Thank you so much for sharing such a private thing. Seeing all the families together this Memorial Day, really drove home how much we want to be parents. Your words really hit home.

    What a wonderful testimony. I have no doubt that this agency can deliver all it promises and more, but it's still great to hear how they have changed other people's lives all over the world.

    Wonderful story! I am so happy that everything worked out for you. I know that it is sometimes hard for people to come to the realization that their bodies aren't able to do what it is supposed to do, and I am so glad that you were able to find someone to help you become a mother. Surrogacy is a beautiful thing!

    It is so great that women are willing to become surrogates for others in need. I am always amazed that people could have such beautiful, selfless hearts. It takes a very special person to offer their body as a vessel for someone else to be able to enjoy the gift of parenthood. Kudos to your surrogate!
