For 4 years, my husband and I tried to have a baby. I had endometreosis and went through years of pain, many surgeries, inseminations, etc. Finally the doctor told me that I needed to have a hysterectomy.
I was 26 years old and this was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through. My husband, family, and friends were very supportive. Without them, I don't know where I would be today. Understanding what we were going through, a friend of ours suggested us We Care's Surrogacy partner clinic in India. Our communication with We Care was absolutely smooth and they were always prompt. We selected the surrogate and came for treatment.
We did the insemination once and it TOOK! So now I am an intended parent :-). We do have an attorney involved. We are now pregnant and due in February 2009
This has been a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it to anyone. Our surrogate is giving us something that we have waited for all our lives... She will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. I pray every day for this WONDERFUl person!! Thank you for reading this and I wish EVERYONE luck and may God bless you if you someday decide to be a surrogate or intended parent.
I feel I am truly blessed!
My journey began with a phone call from the surrogate company. Samira (from the surrogacy agency) called me not even 1 year after I had given birth to a baby girl for another couple, asking me if I would talk to a couple from UK. I didn't know if I was ready so soon, but I agreed to talk to them with no promises.
Smantha (the intended mother) called me a few days later, her English was excellent, and it was more comfortable than I thought it would be to talk with her. I asked her why they could not have children. At the time, on the phone, she just gave me a simple explanation -- her uterus was not strong enough to carry a baby to full term. We didn't talk for long, they wanted to meet me in person to talk more. We Care set up a meeting for two weeks later.
When I saw them both for the first time, the first thing that came to my mind was, "how could two such beautiful people not be able to have children?” We all sat down and she talked a little about where they where from and the problems they had had trying to have a baby. She got a little emotional when she talked about her 4th pregnancy that ended in having a premature baby at 27 weeks -- the baby only lived for 2 weeks.
I looked at her and saw the hurt in her eyes when she said "We only want a reason to live..."
Smantha and Julian were married in UK over 10 years ago. They were both from big families & wanted very much to have children of their own. It didn't take long for Smantha to get pregnant and the problems to start.
Her first pregnancy ended after just a few months. The second seemed more hopeful -- despite the bleeding and cramps she managed to carry to 8 months, but the day she went to the hospital she was bleeding and cramping, emergency c-section the baby was stillborn. At the hospital she remembers being in such agony and not being able to have her husband there because no men are allowed to be in the operating room.
It took a few years for them to try again. As soon as they found out they were pregnant they sold everything they could to move to the US in hope of being more successful at keeping what they thought was their last hope of having a child. The Dr. here kept her on bed rest and stiched her cervix in hope of keep her from going into labor early, but it didnt work. Adelina went into labor at 27 weeks and it could not be stopped. Her beautiful baby Melissa hung onto life for just over 2 weeks, but could not get strong enough to breath on her own.
Smantha was forced to get her tubes tied to prevent future difficulties with herself. It was taking a toll on her physically and emotionally. They both decided it was not meant to be until a freind from her English class offered advice on looking into getting a surrogate in India.
- I had faith that everything would work out for them both and things would go smoothly with no worries. The first attempt was made in January 2007. 3 embryo's were implanted in me and 5 were frozen. It did not take.
The second attempt was done March 5th. They only had 2 viable embryos. Two weeks later I tested positive!! When I was 6 weeks I had an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy and there were two in there :) Smantha was excited. She invited me come stay at her guesthouse to celebrate for a few days.
After a few weeks of bed rest, I went back to my doctor for another ultrasound. I was still pregnant and there where still two in there!!
I had an US (ultrasound) every three weeks after that to keep a eye on them. I had no problems the rest of the pregnancy (except your extra aches and pains from carrying twins.)
On March 6, I went into the hospital to get induced at 37 weeks. After being in labor for over 10 hours, I was not dilating and it was causing stress on the placenta of one of the twins (I was bleeding). I had to have a c-section.
At 10:45 pm Elisa was born, 5lbs 8-1/2 oz and at 10:46pm Anisa, 6lbs 3oz made her appearance. They looked so beautiful and were bigger than expected. They only needed oxygen for one day, and were eating on their own within 3 days.
I went to the hospital to see them before they got to go home as a complete family. To see Smantha holding and singing to them brought tears to my eyes. I thought of the other children she had and was not able to do this with.
I not only helped create a family, I made new friends.
My message to other women considering surrogacy:
If anyone asks why do it, why put yourself through all that? Tell them what that man, woman, or couple went through for years before you stepped in to take their pain away and give them a reason to live.
