At 18yrs old, Ana was diagnosed with a chronic kidney disease and was advised that it might be difficult to conceive due to the medications that she’d have to take. In December of 2016, we received the heartbreaking news that Ana’s kidney function had deteriorated substantially and she would ultimately need a kidney transplant. With that news it was strongly advised that she not try to carry a baby to term, as it would be too dangerous for both. Even with that devastating news it was and continues to be our ambition to have a family. We began immediately talking about the surrogacy route since we have all the ingredients needed: viable eggs and some good swimmers. For the past year, we have been trying to gain as much information about the surrogacy process as we could and are now ready to jump in full heartedly and find a generous woman willing to help us achieve our family goal.
We would love to meet someone that we can get to know a little before all the “needles & probes,” so that we truly are building our relationship on a good foundation for the journey ahead. We want to be as involved in the pregnancy as possible without over stepping your boundaries; attending ultrasound appointments and checking in to see how you are doing. It’s important for us to have an open & honest relationship with our surrogate to ensure that there are no uncomfortable topics throughout the journey. We hope that this relationship lasts for the years to come as we fully anticipate explaining to our child the beautiful story of how he/she came to be from the amazing selfless act & love of our surrogate.
