The Surrogate Mother — WHO is She?
Surrogate Mothers can be lawyers, school teachers, stay-at-home Moms, Army wives, soccer Moms, or just the everyday Mom next door. She defines the all-around enjoyable Mother, who is sophisticated, unselfish, and confident.
She feels intensely drawn to Intended Parents who are fraught with infertility or Intended Gay Couples who just want to be a Mom or Dad. She knows she may be their last chance to offer them hope.
She is centered around family – ultimately defined by her exit.
What is it like to be in HER shoes?
The Voice of the Surrogate Mother: Words can’t covey the passion and value DISCOVERED during Surrogacy Journeys. The STRUGGLE is worth it. I want to erase the existent sense of isolation and EMPTINESS that Intended Parents deal with. It’s a POWERFUL feeling to be able to give someone a chance to create a family. Family is everything I STAND for. For those who question my morals to give up a precious newborn, it’s the endless frugal question.
And its answer is stamped aggressively with passion; it’s simple. It’s not my baby to give up. Nervousness and ANTICIPATION fills the air as the delivery takes place. HAPPINESS and fulfillment strike you when the baby is placed into the arms of the new Parents, the Intended Parents. It becomes a different perspective when I see an Individual light up because this experience has ultimately CHANGED their lives.
As infertility and reproductive treatment escalates in the public eye, Surrogacy is becoming well recognized and understood. A Surrogate Mother provides an incredible blessing in participating in the creation of a family. Through the combination of medical technology and heartfelt compassion of a Surrogate, Intended Parents are finally able to experience their dream of building a family.
