17 Weeks 2 days
This is the first Christmas in 5 years where I do not feel, to one degree or another, a certain kind of sadness.
I feel the joy that I felt before infertility came over me like a cloud of darkness .
I see kids with joy on their faces and I feel joy too.
I remember the darkness, and I feel such an incredible gratitude, what a surrogate does for us intended parents can not be put into words, imagine being able to heal a giant wound, being able to make someone else’s dreams come true, it truly is an amazing gift and one that I am so very grateful for this Christmas.
