the end of a journey

Last week my surrogacy journey came to an end. It all seems so surreal looking back on it. Did I really do this? Did all of this happen? It's been 18 months since I started this whole process and now it's over. 

Giving birth to a baby for another family was...amazing. I have really enjoyed getting to know the parents of this baby. They have always been so sweet and kind to me and my family. Watching them as their sweet girl came into the world brought me a lot of joy. They were both emotional. You could see all over their faces how happy and moved they were by the whole experience. 

So now I get to move on with my life as they begin a whole new one. As much as I have loved being a surrogate I am ready to see what else God has for me. I'm more than done with these childbearing years. I'm curious and excited to see what the future holds. This may be the end of one journey, but it's the beginning of a whole new one.
