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.
