Your dream doesn’t have an expiration date. Take a deep breath and try again.
Conceived at the scariest time of my life in a little dish, five years later, I can hardly believe you’re both here. To be honest the last few weeks have been a bit of a blur. Yet, when I get a minute to catch my breath and think about the journey we’ve been on since this all began, it’s pretty overwhelming. Sometimes a little too much to take in.
The world’s a funny place right now, its certainly not all ‘sunshine and roses’, however, I’m forever grateful that we live during a period of time where not only am I alive today, but you two beautiful, strong girls are here with me. I’ve been writing about our journey online, you see although it’s a little unconventional I want to shout it from the rooftops. I want your story to be heard because it’s so wonderful, I want to get all the details down before I forget them and I want you to be able to tell it to your children and to theirs after that. Lastly, I want to be able to help others who are on their own unconventional journeys, to give them hope when all seems lost and remind them, as someone once told me ‘Your dream doesn’t have an expiration date. Take a deep breath and try again. ‘
So here we are, my letters, your incredible story.
Forever & Always

I love what you’ve written so far! I too had a rollercoaster ride, but with an ivf journey not a surrogacy one. But I can relate exactly to what you’ve written here. Especially how you spend most of your twenties worrying about getting pregnant when in reality it’s really not that easy! I also had my girls at Pembury hospital too. Id love to read more about your journey. Good luck with your new arrival. Xx
Thank you. Having children just isn’t as easy as it’s made out to be! (Well for some anyway) Xx
