Dear Prospective Surrogate,
We are writing to you with hopeful hearts filled with love, and with the sincere wish to share our story with you. We are L and M. We have been together for nine years and have been married for six. We married young, at 25, and spent the first 4.5 years of our marriage growing as individuals, building our careers, traveling, and preparing for the family we would someday create. When we were finally ready to grow our family, it didn’t take long for us to get
pregnant. We felt ready and couldn’t wait to start our family, but we could never have imagined the challenges that lay ahead.
Our pregnancy was easy and we were excited to discover the gender of our first baby at delivery. M was scheduled for a routine C-section, but unfortunately, the joy of bringing our daughter into this world was overshadowed by a traumatic medical event. Right after the delivery, they discovered that M had a rare medical condition known as placenta accreta, which caused her to hemorrhage and left the doctors with no other option than to perform an emergency hysterectomy to save M’s life. Thankfully, our sweet 6lb 7oz little girl (surprise!), B Marie, was perfect and healthy! We are grateful every day that M and B survived!
Despite these circumstances, the deep desire in our hearts to grow the family that we have dreamed of for years remains undiminished. We both firmly believe that the outcome of B’s delivery is not the end of our family’s story. It’s this belief that has led us on our search for a surrogate through Family Makers, and we are so hopeful that they can help us realize our dream. We have spent the last year pouring ourselves in our daughter and enjoying every moment of parenthood, but also healing and emotionally opening our hearts to the possibility of growing our family in a way we had never imagined just over a year ago. We remain optimistic about this journey because we have faith in the strength of human kindness and the miracles it can create.
As we embark on this surrogacy journey, we are in search of a surrogate who is compassionate, understanding, and willing to take this life-changing journey with us. We understand that this is a significant decision, and we greatly appreciate the physical and emotional commitment it entails. We promise to be fully supportive throughout this journey, to be open about our feelings and
experiences, and to always treat you with the utmost respect and gratitude. We hope to build not only a partnership but also a lasting friendship. After all, you will be the one carrying our precious bundle of joy, a role that is as intimate as it is profoundly meaningful.
While we may not know each other yet, we are already incredibly grateful to you for considering
helping families like ours. It’s a noble act that takes a heart full of kindness and courage.
If our story resonates with you, and you feel that you could help us on our journey, we would be thrilled to hear from you. Our hearts are full of love and hope for the family we desire to grow, and we would be honored to take this journey with you. Thank you for taking the time to read our letter, and for considering us as potential intended parents. We can only imagine the impact of your decision, and we hope that you might choose to help us bring a new life into our loving family.
L, M, and B
