Sadly I had a hysterectomy in my 20s (never should have been) and gestational surrogacy is our only option for children. Long ago I thought I didn't want kids until I met the love of my life. Knowing I could not get pregnant by myself because of a surgery that never should have been, was sheer hell especially since I am very healthy. It was devastating. Luckily though, we managed to have one child via a GS as I still had my ovaries and healthy eggs. It was a life changing experience and the best thing I ever did. Everything went fairly smoothly. We learned a lot through the process. However this time we'd like to skip the agency as they didn't help much for the incredibly high cost they charged. In fact, they made things more difficult. My husband and I REALLY REALLY want two more children. This is the only way to make life happen.
My husband and I are happily married, passionate, honest and hard working people in our 30s. We own our own business and work together. We're spiritual not religious, health conscious, driven, well traveled, can talk to anybody about anything and love reading about ancient European culture and traditions. In most ways though, we are fairly traditional. I just learned that a little too late in life! The thing we value above everything is a tight family. On time off, we love the outdoors.
Surrogates are amazing women! Thank the Gods/God for women like you. It blows me away. I know there's compensation but it's not something just anybody could give. So thank you in advance for helping our dreams come true! You won't ever be forgotten. We want more children more than anything in the world. In fact, I had dreams about the first one before he came and now I am having dreams about the second one. I know it is going to happen. Wish list: preferably we'd like someone health conscious or at least willing to eat paleo/organic and skip the toxic chemicals during the pregnancy. We even purchased all nontoxic makeup for our last surrogate. We'd love someone trustworthy, easy going, honest, brave and relaxed with a stable support system. Sometimes it takes two transfer attempts to work but usually the first one takes with 2 healthy embryos implanted. She would also need to have health insurance that covers surrogacy or pregnancy. We are comfortable with a hospital birth and/or home birth. Ideally, we'd like someone in Idaho or Virginia but are open to other options. We're confident and know the GS process very well as we've been through it, have an attorney, clinic, and can provide references if need be. Our embryos are ready to go, waiting. We're reliable, honest, caring, supportive IPs who want everything to go as easy as it can for all involved. Your body, our baby. It's so wild but nature does all the magic and we have all the respect in the world for it and for you. Since this is such a personal thing to share, we haven't posted pictures online but would love to chat via Skype video.
