I want to share my story.
Hello my name is Emma I would like to share my story and I wish this would help other people who may found themselves in the same situation. For many people surrogacy is one of the few options they have when they want to have a child and while it has its good points, like anything there are some things one must consider when opting for certain options. I am from Lima, Peru now I have a beautiful daughter named Dalma, she is my treasure after 4 years of TTC. Me and my husband are medium level citizen we arent rich but we can live quite comfortable and happy lives. We had been married for what would be 10 years, I am now a woman who is around 40 years old and our little baby has 3 years. Me and my husband met during work I was a teacher in one of the towns deep into the mountains and my husband working for a Mining company in that same town. We met for accident and we rapidly fell in love. We marry quite quickly but we had quite a happy time together, after a year of so we began wanting to have a child. We had reached some sort of stability so we tried for a year but we ended with no positive results. After trying for a couple more months we went to see an specialist which inform us after many different test that I could never get pregnant. I am sorry but I dont wish to share the reason of my infertility as is something which is way to personal to share it right now. What I can say is that it affected me and my husband really hard, he began to grew distant using his job as an excuse to be alone. We went through some hard moment until we eventually sit and talked with the help of a common friend along with his and my parents support. Eventually after making peace with each other we seeked other ways I could become pregnant. In the end because of my condition we could only go for surrogacy, and while at the beginning all went well we went to specialized center and gor a surrogate mother. The nine months passed in a flash and in there tragedy strike. You see according to the laws in Peru the surrogate mother can wait till she has given birth to change her mind. We treat her well and made sure she could be as comfortable as possible we make sure she was sure during different stages of the pregnancy but at the end when we had our hopes crushed as she changed her mind and took out baby. We once again felt like we were hitting the bottom. We were dubious of trying for another surrogacy after such experience but after a couple of months we decided to try again. Fortunately it went well and we have to our little adoration. I would like to advice other people to look into the surrogacy laws in any country they want to try before they go this path. Some laws doesnt support people like us who wants to have family, I hope this helps. thank you. I hope it helps anyone who read this and if there is any question, feel free to ask.
