The other side...

I have delved into this world of surrogacy because I want to help another couple experience the same joy as I have with my kiddos. Aside from all the chaos,fights, and messes that go along with raising two boys, they are so sweet. They make me smile every day and I simply can not picture my world with out them. I have thought a lot about couples that can not conceive. I think I can imagine what it would be like to be in the IP's shoes, but fact is, I don't. How could I ever possibly?

I stumbled upon a blog today of an IP's journey into surrogacy from the parents perspective and it brought me to tears. The struggles and the ups and downs of the whole process were heart wrenching. This discovery has shed a new light on the whole subject for me. I have seen things a little differently and I hope it will help me remember why I started this journey in the first place...especially when I do become pregnant and start complaining about heartburn, and swollen feet. =)

I know it will prove to be a positive experience for me. Yes, I will feel really good inside and yadda yadda yadda, but nothing compares to how the parents of the child(ren) will feel when all is said and done. For the parents, this is a dream come true! I feel like I could take all of the excitement and happiness I experience through this process and double it (or maybe quadruple it!) and it still wouldn't hold a candle to what these parents would feel. I gotta say, from my side, it feels really good to know that I get to play a part in helping them to achieve that happiness...I can't wait!

Hi there! I just got caught up in your journey. Wow, what a ride! I'm sorry your FIPs didn't end up having a baby, but am inspired by their attitude. I hope you get matched and get to move on with your new journey soon! :)
