Happy Birthday

Happy birthday, baby L!!!! It's your big day! Your parents trusted me to care for you for the last nine months. I've felt you grow within me, getting stronger every day and now you get to fill the arms of the ones whose hearts you have filled since you were a tiny embryo...maybe even before that as your parents have loved you long before you were ever conceived. The path to get here had some bumps, but they persevered and now, we are all waiting to meet you; the dream, the wanted, the so loved little girl that you already are.

So, be sweet to me and let's have a smooth birth little girl. :) I can't wait to see you meet your family!

Love,
Me

Almost three years ago, while researching surrogacy and reading on a message board, I came across a picture of an IM seeing her baby for the first time. That picture captured the heart of surrogacy for me and in that moment solidified my decision to pursue surrogacy. Today, I get that moment to experience first hand. It's a beautiful thing.

So very proud of you, my dear surro friend! I can't wait to see your pictures, and to see the one of your IM meeting her precious little miracle princess!!! Its going to be an indescribable feeling for you - words just cannot convey until you've been there. That moment makes every single mountain & valley, shot & pill, joy & sorrow very much worth it. Prayers for you my friend....enjoy every single moment!

Wait a second. I'm not ready. I want to keep reading your blog and seeing your amazing posts. Can't Baby L hold out just a little bit longer for me??? It's ok. I think we're all excited to meet her. Can't wait for the next post and hopefully a picture or two of a beautiful, healthy baby girl!
