A year and a half ago I met Jen. Jen is a gestational carrier aka surrogate mother. We met on a website specifically for social networking between surrogates and Intended parents. Miguel and I are intended parents.
Now a year and a half later, through countless emails, texts, message board entries, phone calls and social meetings we are here……After psychological evaluations, physical exams, infectious disease screening, home studies and criminal background checks ….here we are! Through IVF cycling, genetic testing and embryo transfers…Here we are!
We are finally pregnant! Jen is Pregnant! We are having a baby!
No Wait! This gets better……
We are not just having one baby!
WE ARE HAVING TWO BABIES!
WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER! WE COULDN’T BE MORE TERRIFIED!
BUT MOST OF ALL… WE THANK GOD FOR GETTING US HERE!
Last Friday We got to see two heartbeats and two babies….. We are speechless!
We can’t thank Jen enough for this unbelievable selfless act.Did I mention they are both Boys! We are having twin boys!
