hi all –
me again. though our journey is over, i am not totally done with the blog. i think that one really important thing that i learned during this journey is that it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, super, super important to be able to connect with other folks who are on the same journey, no matter if they are Canadian (though that helps for Canadians) or if they are at different points in their journey. i have mentioned before that i felt i had some very close ties, especially right around the time we were in Mumbai, and even though i had never met these women, it really mean the world to know that they were there, in similar shoes, and could relate to what i was going through at the time.
therefore, i am going to share a couple of blogs, just for reference and perhaps for connection amongst you all:
this one is a Canadian woman who is just starting her journey, after some really hard times. her writing is fairly blunt, like mine, so give it a try (i think she’s telling someone off in her latest post, but if you dig further in, you will see the journey is one of surrogacy):
this one is an Australian woman who is deep into the journey, and though her journey and process is different somewhat to that of a Canadian couple (lucky on that count), i found her writing to be so beautiful and her honesty to be so refreshing and helpful when i came across feelings that i was unfamiliar with in my journey, i could read this blog and feel that i was not alone in my thoughts. plus, her photography is a wonderful addition to the blog:
i am sure there are a million more, and i am still hoping that my friend who is going through the Mumbai shenanigans right now will eventually blog and/or write an article or book about the whole thing, and if she does, i will certainly link to it.
if you know of other helpful surrogacy blogs, feel free to email me and i will absolutely post the links here on my blog.
share, share, share, share!!!
