I'm a lucky girl. I get to speak with prospective surrogates every day. I truly enjoy explaining the process to them, answering their questions and hopefully settling some of their concerns and fears. There are a few questions that I'm asked on a very regular basis, and I figured if all of these prospective surrogates are asking the same questions, surely others are wondering the same thing, and so why not address those questions here?
Q: Is it really hard to give up the babies?
A: Simply put, NO.
Q: Do you keep in touch with the parents?
Q: Would you do it again?
*This question has been asked by more than just prospective surrogates... MANY of you have also inquired about this very thing! Drumroll....I'm finally answering your question.
A: Yes, I'd love to have another journey. I'd love to add to, or complete George and Farid's family if and when they choose to do so.
My life has changed so much in the last year. I've started my career in this field and it keeps me very busy and incredibly satisfied. I'm a busy single mom. So much of a surrogacy journey for me was and is about the incredible relationship that is formed between 2 families. Farid and George know me, and my family knows them. We trust each other. The relationship is already there and solid. To share another journey with them would be amazing in so many ways.
That being said, it's a pretty great feeling to also know that I am 100% okay if another journey does not occur. I'm so happy with my life - with all that I have done and all that I am doing.
Surrogacy has drastically changed my life. I experienced it first hand, and now I experience it on a daily basis through others. I'm extremely satisfied with it all.
So I'll say here what I say to many others. If Farid and George decide that they would like to add to their family via surrogacy, I'd be honored to carry for them again. If not, I will proudly retire this uterus. 3 healthy pregnancies, 4 healthy babies ~ She done good.
