Brilliant Blogs!

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for blogging their surrogacy experiences (including my followers). I am finding it extremely informative and feel priveleged to read about your journey and the range of feelings and emotions that have/are accompanying you on that path. Whilst I don't think anything can quite prepare you for this rollercoaster ride, reading your blogs is helping me (and hubby) make better informed decisions.Thanks for your words of wisdom, bravery in revealing raw emotions and willingness to share. xxx mel


  1. Just found your blog! Wishing you a successful journey and you are not too old to be parents.

  2. Thanks so much....I love that you were able to expand your family. We hope we can do that too with siblings for bubs. Fingers crossed for success.

  3. To whom it may concern,

    My name is Polina, I am a Russian journalist and photographer, currently living in Canada. I am taking part in the project dedicated to the problems of surrogate maternity which focuses on scientists and doctors who give an opportunity to childless couples and single persons to become parents. We hope that this project will help legalize surrogacy in the countries where it is not legalized yet and remove prejudices from this issue.

    We want to create a series of portraits of surrogate mothers in Canada, India, Russia, Ukraine and USA, backed by short interviews as well as portraits and interviews with industry specialists and doctors. We believe that surrogate mothers are very special women and we want to document their humanity and unique generosity for generations to come.

    We are planing to present this project on World Press Photo 2013 global competition in "Daily life" or "Contemporary issues" categories. All materials (interviews and images) will be approved with participants before unveiling to the jury and the public.

    I am planing to visit India in March and I will be very thankful for any information or contacts.
    Thank you for your time,
    Best regards,
