It's not every day that you get to meet a surrogate (we are very rare gems, don't ya know? ;)). You may pass by one at the local grocery store or might sit behind one in a restaurant, but you would never know it unless she was wearing a t-shirt that said "Yes, I'm pregnant, No it's not mine" or "Proud Surrogate". So, how does a surrogate like myself meet other local surrogates?
I am a part of a surrogacy related online forum and I reached out to other local surrogates and it turns out there really are other surrogates in my area--who knew!! So...I organized a meet up and we got together this past Sunday for breakfast. It was so nice to meet other ladies who are going through or have gone through this wonderful journey. We all had a great time getting to know one another, chatting about our journeys, and plan to get together now on a regular basis.
You can never have too much support!! I am so thankful that my surrogacy support network keeps growing and growing and growing.... =)
