Surprise Surrogate Reveal!

One of the most amazing parts of writing this blog is the joy of hearing from all of our readers.  We still get weekly and daily letters from people from all over who are struggling with infertility and other surrogates who are starting their journeys. 

Today, I received a beautiful email from a mother and a video attached that made me cry all the tears. 

Holly wrote in to tell us, sadly, last year, November 2013, she lost boy/girl twins at 21 weeks.  My heart broke as read her email. I cannot even imagine.  Then she went on to tell me something beautiful.  A friend of theirs had offered to be their gestational carry, and be the surrogate for them. 

Holly says:
"We kept our surrogacy a secret and surprised our family at 24 weeks, right after holding a memorial for my twins/spreading ashes.  My family thought we were taking a family picture (taken by a "stanger") but it was really our surrogate's husband filming!!" 

Pictured: Holly's family's reaction:

I love videos that surprise people with beautiful emotional things. I must say, I have never seen a video like this, and I don't know if it because surrogacy is so close to my heart, or because I know the loss this family went through, but I cried so hard I could not longer see the screen. Get tissues out, this is beautiful:
