Feeling all warm and fuzzy after a midnight wake up with my 4.5 month old. After nursing him and letting him fall back asleep in my arms, he reached out for my hand to hold. It was the sweetest thing as he gave mine a squeeze as if he was communicating, “Mommy, I love you. I trust you. Thank you, Mama.” Oh my heart!
I will get asked the question, “why surrogacy, Helen?”. And while I have multiple reasons and answers, one big one is knowing there is another Mommy out there who now has a little boy to squeeze his hand and tell him, “you are safe and you are loved.” And there is no better feeling in the whole world.
