As intended parents, you should view your discussion of surrogacy as an ongoing conversation rather than a one-time talk. The more information you can give to your child, the stronger their understanding of surrogacy (and in turn, their sense of identity) is going to be. If you are struggling or need additional suggestions for talking with your child about this topic, consider speaking to a surrogacy social worker or family therapist. Your child’s surrogacy story is a positive one, it is a story of people coming together out of love to help create a life. Be proud of the way your family was built, and your child will likely model your attitudes and behaviors. However, if you’ve already laid an educational foundation and talked openly with your child about his or her surrogacy story, it will be a very natural progression as they begin to understand exactly how the process works and what their story means. It is important throughout this phase to be open and honest with your child and to answer any questions he or she may have.
I am really thankful for this post. It is so honest. You are absolutely right. I second your each and every word. This should be done. I was advised the same. Initially, I was not ready for Surrogacy. For the very same reason. I was afraid and worried. I didn’t know if the child will accept it. Then I referred to a clinic. It is in Europe. The staff there made me understand this. They calmed me down. They told me how things can be changed. I owe them. I am a mother of a 5-year-old now. I can never be happier.
Hey dear. How are you? Hope you are doing okay. It is so good to see when people make their decisions. I know. I have been through this phase of life. I have been through this journey. And I know how much courage it takes to get up. To put yourself together. And set foot to help yourself. There are so many myths. So many confusions regarding these procedures. But I was suggested many clinics in Europe. I am glad that I came across this particular one that helped me clear my head. And make all y decisions. You have done an amazing job. I hope you stick to it. Wishing you good luck. And all the happiness. Prayers.
