I am grateful to those who bravely share their fertility stories with others—whether online or over a warm cup of tea. I always learn and grow through these journeys… finding out about a product I had not yet heard about, hearing a recommendation for a helpful book, or seeing a challenging situation through a unique and inspiring outlook.
“The Odenton Patch” published a wonderful story on a local mom who decided to become a surrogate. In the article Kathy Powers talks about how she loved being pregnant, but already had two children and her family felt complete. Powers beautifully discusses how she decided to become a surrogate, her journey while pregnant, and her relationship with the intended parents-all while informing the reader about some of the legal and financial aspects of surrogacy.
Join Michael and Matthew as they blog about their experiences creating a family. In their most recent blog post, they write about meeting their surrogate for the first time and the wonderful connection they formed right off the bat. Posts such as “What we learned from out visits to the fertility clinic,” and “Searching for a Grade AA Egg Donor” allow readers to both learn from and laugh with Michael and Matthew. Global IVF wishes the best of luck to Michael and Matthew as they continue on their journey. I know I will be following along on their blog.
