I am not a very emotional person, but, when it comes to my issues of having children I get very emotional. There is nothing I have wanted more the past 5 years than to start a family. It would get me excited to think about having a child that is half of me and half of my husband. When we finally got the news that there wasn't anything we could do, my world shattered. I will never get to experience my own child growing inside of me. I will never get to experience giving birth. Little did I know, there are options. My doctor was wrong, there are steps my husband and I can take. And, that leads me here. Having a surrogate would answer my prayers. Thinking about it, it would do more than that! It would be the blessing of our lives!
I am 25 years old. My husband and I have been married for five years. I am an accounting major and my husband is a foreman for a tree service. I am a shy person with a very laid back personality. My husband is the social butterfly of the two of us and is not shy in the slightest bit. When I was 16 years old I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cysts. All of my sisters have the same issue. I was told then that I would not be able to conceive naturally. My sisters were told as well. I am lucky in the sense that I do not have to go through this alone. It has brought my sisters and me closer. The first year of my marriage my husband and I tried everything we could think of to get pregnant. We took fertility pills, dieted, exercised, you name it we probably tried it. After that first year we were heart broken and exhausted. So, we put our dream of having children of our own on hold. Last year in August I was crushed between a tractor and truck. Luckily, my legs are still attached and I can walk! But, I am going to have issues with my leg for the rest of my life. Having such a traumatic event happen really showed us what was important. From that day on we decided we would do anything to have children. That brings me here. We are really hoping to find the perfect match!
To our future surrogate, Words cannot express how big of a difference you will make in our lives. We have asked God for a miracle over and over again, and I truly believe you are that miracle! Having issues conceiving is a gut wrenching, heart shattering experience. There are little to be said or done to make all of that better. But, you have decided to take a selfless step forward so that we do not have to be in pain anymore. You are my hero! A million "thank-you"'s is not enough!
