Me as a Gestational Carrier!!

** A moment in my Tummy, forever in my heart**

Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm not the best writer so bare with me as I try to tell about my experience :) I am a mom of 4 ranging from ages 13-3. About 12 years ago I decided that one day I would help a family bring a child into this world. In 2011 I met my first Intended family and delivered a baby boy on Aprils fools Day 2012. I now am matched with my second family and I look forward to what this journey brings to us.

The first post!

So were do I start? Huh! I waited so long to finally write about this. So most of you already know because I have a big mouth... lol. But I would really like to blog about my experience of being a surrogate. It all started well eight years ago. I have always wanted to be a gestational carrier. But it was important I had my own children first.

About six months ago I called the U of U Infertility clinic asking how you become a surrogate. She told me I needed to advertise. I remember thinking "What!" How do you advertise your uterus. On a billboard along the freeway.  Maybe on a KSL add. Well they both seemed a little wrong. But in Utah their is no Surrogacy clinic.  I was referred  to talk to a Lawyer  here that deals with the Infertility and I have to say for a Lawyer he was so compassionate.  Back in the days he was looking for a surrogate for him and his wife. He talked to me for a hour or so about the process. He sent me over some paper work to fill out and send back. Then I could be stored in his database. Then when a family came to him he could advertise me.

I filled out the paper work, but I never sent it back. I honestly had no reason to not send it back but maybe I wanted to make sure it was pretty and there were a couple scribbles on a page.

So on Tuesday January 4, I have been talking to a friend that we were looking into me donating my eggs to her. That morning we were talking about the laws in Utah. So I thought I bet the lawyer I talked to 6 months ago would know the answers to my questions. I called him up and as were were talking he asked " Did you ever send your papers back for Surrogacy. I am currently looking for a surrogate for a couple families. If you would like can you fax the papers in for me." I told him I would send them in by that night, and I did.

On Wednesday he called me and asked if he could forward my portfolio to a couple families. I told him he was welcome to. Then on Thursday morning he emailed and this is what it read..
