A picture says a thousand words; and this picture shows how proud these kiddos are of their Mama for being a surrogate. Who wouldn’t have love and respect for someone that sacrifices and gives the gift of life. Often times surrogates are asked “What do your kids think?” or “How do your kids feel about this?”, the person asking anticipating a negative reaction but to the contrary. Children of gestational carriers are proud and embrace the journey just as their parents do; after all our children model our feelings and behaviors. They build relationships with the soon-to-be parent just as the GS does and look forward to the day little baby comes and makes them a family too…..just like their own.
