Surrogacy – this morning I received the below article from one of my SI (secondary infertility) clients, it was a great wake up call for me. I think secretly I would think, like many, Well at least you have one child This article really put things in perspective for me, again, as they should be.
As a Mom myself, I often wonder what life would have been like, had I just had Christina, my oldest? One of life’s cruelest jokes has to be struggling with SI. 10% of CFCs clients are Intended parents who have one child, but for whatever reason, aren’t able to conceive again. It is so tough, as many of them come from large families, and truly just want the experience of siblings for their kids. Is that too much to ask!!!
When looking for a Surrogate for them, I know who I’m looking for- A Mom, with 3 or more kids, who understands the blessing of more than a couple of kids, and can truly understand that desire in another.
Thank you so much Tracy, for sending me this article, as it was time for me to be reminded about the blessing of siblings, and to really have it put in perspective for me how a Surrogate can be an equal blessing to those childless, as well as those with children already.
