It’s a very strange feeling to have found a wonderful person, fallen in love, planned the wedding, bought the family home… and then not be able to have the children together that you so desperately want.
Surrogates are amazing women, we will be the first to tell you that!
Hi everyone, I am Kim from Portsmouth. Six months ago I heard some very sad news of a friend who, due to cervical cancer, couldn’t conceive her own child.
The Huffington Post has published a feature about three same-sex couples and their family-building journeys. It includes the story of Michael and Jerome, dads through UK surrogacy with Brilliant Beginnings, who shared their journey:
The answer will vary depending on who you ask but the general thought associated with that saying is a long duration.
We wanted to share this letter, which was sent by a US surrogate for her UK intended parents as a surprise for their final parental order hearing.
I hear that expression a lot when first telling people that I’m going to be a surrogate – and the reaction tends to be even stronger when they discover that I’m doing it for people that until last year I’d never met before!
Anna: “The labour was extremely quick, so quick that Michael and Jerome almost missed it!
Anna: “The support we had from Michael and Jerome was amazing.
How did you feel during the surrogate screening process and waiting to be matched?
Anna is Brilliant Beginnings’ first surrogate and is delighted to have helped bring a gorgeous baby boy into the world in April this year.
We are absolutely thrilled to announce the arrival of our first Brilliant Beginnings Baby, little Rupert who was born on 1st April 2015 weighing a healthy 7.7lbs!
