Why Surrogacy?

I’m sure many people are wondering why I would want to be a surrogate and carry someone else’s child so I’ll explain why.

I never had any intention of being a surrogate until our daughter, C, passed away. I was involuntarily thrust into the world of babyloss. In this community of moms (and dads) there were those who struggled with infertility. I saw how difficult it can be for some to have children and it opened my heart to want to help someone who couldn’t have a child or carry a child themselves. I’ve been blessed to be able to conceive, carry, and birth 4 beautiful daughters. I want to be able to give the gift of a child to another couple who need help doing so. So, it is because of my daughter that I have chosen to do this. She has inspired me in so many ways and I am continually thankful for her.

Redirection of this blog

This space used to be my family blog for several years where I blogged publicly. I then decided to make it private and kept blogging. Eventually though, I stopped and it's been sitting ever since. I didn't want to delete it so I kept it in case I ever wanted to use it for something else.

I've decided that this blog will now be where I blog about my surrogacy journey. I do plan to keep some anonymity with this new change. Those who know me personally won't be bothered by this and it offers a bit more protection than being so open about some things like names.

So, to everyone who visits here I welcome you! You can always leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by. :)
