Happy First Birthday!!

Today marks one year since Colette made her entrance into the world and into her dads’ arms! I can’t believe it’s been a year already!

So what does surrogacy look like a year later? It looks like being in the middle of a transfer cycle with another set of IFs LOL I still talk to my previous IFs via email every couple months. They always send lots of pictures and videos which I absolutely love seeing. There are usually pictures of her with various family members and family friends. It’s so amazing to see how many people in her life absolutely adore her. When you’re a GC you think you’re just helping your IPs have a baby, you don’t always realize that you are actually affecting the lives of so many other people. The babies we help our IPs to bring home have grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a whole host of people who anxiously await their arrival and a chance to love on them.

Today I’ve been reminiscing about all the things that were happening one year ago. Each time I look at the clock I think “oh a year ago we were starting Pitocin” or “my contractions were just starting to pick up”. It’s amazing to think that was a year ago already. It seems like just a couple months ago, but at the same time a lifetime ago. I really hope that 10 months from now I’m back there delivering another baby for another wonderful couple. Helping grow families is a little addictive if I’m being honest. Aside from enjoying being pregnant (at least after I stop feeling nauseous 24/7) it’s incredible to be a part of growing a family. There’s a reason a lot of surrogates (I would venture to say most) go on to do multiple journeys.

So Happy First Birthday Colette! You have brought so many people so much joy in your year here. I will always be grateful for the universe bringing your dads and I together to bring you into this world. I have so much gratitude to your parents for letting me play a part in your story. I could not have asked for a better experience and you will all always hold a special place in my heart. Sending you so much love from across the pond on your special day ❤ ❤
