Our Surrogate..our Angel.
I am always taken back by the way certain individuals have arrived in our life, since the death of Ireland and Katelyn. I was tattered and torn, not knowing which direction to turn in. On a whim I posted our story online in hopes someone could help us. There were a handful of people who responded with warmth and kindness. But, it was Christine who I felt an instinctive connection to. We followed each other on social media and I knew she was the one, my gut told me. This time I listened. We got to know each other and I cautiously started looking a this option of surrogacy. It was hard. I was terrified.
Something told me she was the one. She wanted to help our family. That was it. She was willing to carry a baby for me because I could not. I saw a door opening….She wanted us to have a positive experience….a positive outcome, and she was confident she could do it. I believed her. I was open. Something told me……you must take this leap of faith. I jumped. Blinded by adversity and full of fear. She held my hand and my soul. She guided me…we took care of each other. She took care of my precious little Scarlett. Her body did what mine could not. Together, we formed a bond, a connection. She is humble and generous. She is my family……I am indebted to her. She amazes me…I am in awe.
