Dear Prospective Surrogate,
We are writing to express our sincere and heartfelt desire to find a gestational carrier for our growing family, and we believe that you might be the perfect match to help us achieve our dream. We welcomed our daughter, Audrey, 1 year ago after 4.5 years of infertility treatments. We underwent eleven rounds of IVF, five surgeries, several procedures, and sadly experienced too much loss to quantify. As you can imagine, we were absolutely thrilled to learn that our embryo transfer was successful in the spring of 2022. We were pregnant! And cautiously optimistic as we graduated from our fertility clinic to an OB. We could finally begin to see a future with our healthy daughter that we so desperately wanted. My pregnancy was complicated by a placenta previa, but otherwise very healthy. Unfortunately, this complication resulted in significant blood loss during Audrey’s delivery and the life-saving measure to remove my uterus was our only option. Despite this devastation, we were so thankful that Audrey suffered no complications and that we were all discharged home healthy. However, our dream of another child – another pregnancy – was now going to look a lot different than we imagined. This is where we hope that you come in.
We have been married for six wonderful years, and during this time, we have built a strong and loving foundation for our family. Our journey together has been one filled with love, respect, and unwavering support for one another. We believe that this strong marital foundation will provide a nurturing and stable environment for our children. I am a second career healthcare worker and transitioned to healthcare in 2010 after realizing passion was missing from my career. In becoming a nurse, I have been given the great privilege of making a positive impact on the lives of the patients in my care and am able to contribute in a meaningful way to their healing process during some of their most vulnerable moments.
T is in banking and channels his interest in finance towards helping his clients achieve their financial goals and ensure their long-term financial well-being. Contributing to his clients’ peace of mind over their financial security is the aspect of his career for which his is most proud. T and I met over 20 years ago (the particulars of that story depend on which one of us you’re asking!), but it wasn’t our time just then. We reconnected in late 2016 and knew very quickly that we were meant for one another. We were engaged in 2017 and married in 2018. Our family is at the center of our lives, and Audrey has brought immeasurable joy into our world. We are truly family-oriented, cherishing every moment spent together. Audrey has shown us the profound happiness that a child brings and we hope to complete our family with your help. Our longing for another child is only rivaled by our desire to provide our daughter with the gift of a sibling to grow up with, share her experiences, and create lasting memories. We understand the importance of sibling bonds in a child’s development, and we want to ensure that our children have the opportunity to foster a deep and meaningful connection with one another. This is why we are seeking the assistance of a gestational carrier to help us expand our family and provide Audrey with a sister to grow up with.
Choosing a gestational carrier is a significant decision, and we recognize the trust and responsibility it involves. We want to assure you that we are dedicated to making this process as smooth and comfortable as possible for you. Your well-being, comfort, and needs will also be a top priority throughout this journey, just as we will prioritize the well-being and needs of our children. We believe that our love, commitment, and our shared dream of expanding our family make us an excellent match for a gestational carrier. If you are open to discussing this possibility further, we would be thrilled to meet with you to share more about our family, answer any questions you may have, and explore the potential of embarking on this journey together. Thank you for taking the time to consider our request. We eagerly await your response and the opportunity to discuss this life-changing experience with you.
T & S
