If you've been a reader of the blog for a while now, you know that I gave birth to a surrogate baby on July 4th in 2012. It was my first time being a gestational surrogate, and I can still say it was honestly one of the greatest things I have ever had the honor to be a part of in my life. Currently, I am in the middle of cycling for another round of surrogacy for the same couple, hoping to have a sibling for their beautiful little girl to play with. The reason for this post is to answer some of the FAQ's I have received in regards to gestational surrogacy.
On the way to our family reunion in West Virginia, our first stop was Stone Mountain Park in Georgia, just a short drive outside Atlanta. We had visited the park a few years ago, but were wanting to experience "Summer at the Rock," and celebrate the 4th of July weekend with their extended fireworks display after their always spectacular laser light show.
The boys and I took off to the theater the other day to see the newest movie from Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures, The Secret Life of Pets. It was a great comedy for all-audiences, and I loved the mix of rebellious "flushed pets" versus the sweet pets. The fact that we too have a dog named "Max" really helped the boys relate to the movie as well. When the boys got home, they were just craving more of the lovable characters.
