In December of 2013, Rich and I decided to start pursuing surrogacy. We knew it would not be a fast or easy process. We had been told that if we wanted children via surrogacy, we needed to start before we felt totally ready, simply because it can take a while. So, Rich and I started the process of searching for a surrogate.
At the time, we decided to do traditional surrogacy, which means that the egg donor and surrogate are the same woman. We understood the struggles of traveling down this path, but at the time Rich and I felt this was the right choice for us. We ended up connecting with a wonderful woman who contacted us on Valentines Day. We formed a relationship with her and her family in hopes of doing a transfer sometime in the future. After four months, she had a change of circumstance, and we ended up parting ways. Rich and I were disappointed, but not broken.
