My husband and I are currently planning on having our child through gestational surrogacy. We have been married almost 3 years and are ready to begin expanding our family.
In 2012, I was diagnosed with a hydatidiform mole, which is a noncancerous tumor that develops in the uterus. At the time of this diagnosis, I was only 25 years old, and my uterus had to be surgically removed to save my life. I did not have any children prior to this and still have dreams of making children a reality. Thankfully, I was able to keep my ovaries and knew what the possibilities would be. Shortly after this life changing surgery I met the love of my life, who accepted me exactly how I was. He knew that I had a special situation and we continued to get to know each other and fell in love.
Fast forward to now, neither one of us have very lucrative professions, however we feel confident in our abilities to raise a child of our own. I have been teaching elementary school for the last 10 years and love being a public servant. Taking care of young children on a daily basis reminds me of how much I could contribute to my own family and raising wonderful productive members of society.
My husband comes from a more challenging background, with limited higher education opportunities. He does plan on entering the IT field upon passing the certification exams and studies hard everyday in preparation. Our outlook is altogether positive. Although we are both hard working people, we are making this surrogacy journey independently without the help of an agency, simply due to the added costs.
In the next few days we will be creating our embryos. If we are able to successfully freeze some embryos, with CCS testing included, we will be ready for a singleton FET in August or September of this year. The process from start to finish not covered at all by either one of our insurance companies, and we are therefore left to pay all expenses out of pocket.
If we are able to bring another life into this world, we would love our child and be able to experience all the joys of parenthood. Neither one of us have any children and my husband comes from a family of three siblings. We want as many children as God will bless us with and that we can financially support. We want to take family vacations, watch the little ones grow up and leave a lasting legacy that will continue on for future generations. There will be many more steps in the process of starting our family and hopefully this website can help match us with the perfect surrogate.
