I received a wonderful card in the mail the other day and I am so excited to share it with everyone (of course with permission from the sender!). It is so very important to have the support of your family and friends throughout this whole journey. I am very lucky and blessed that I have a strong support network. Without it, this whole surrogacy experience wouldn't be possible. So, thank you--Thank you all for your love and support. It truly means the world to me!
The card reads:
I was sitting in one of my counseling classes when I received your email about you actually being a surrogate. At the time I was learning how to be an effective counselor and how I can help people. As I began to read your email I was touched by your decision. I realized this is your way of helping others and making an impact in someone's life. Then I immediately thought of your Dad. You are your father; You love kids and you are always willing to help others.
When I had first heard about this I must admit I was shocked. However, while reading your email I became tearful and I realized how important this is to you. I want you to know that I understand and respect your decision. I am lucky to have a giving friend like you in my life.
I wish you luck and God Bless you and your family.
