My sister had five miscarriages before she was able to carry two pregnancies through and have a family of her own. In this time I prepared myself to be able to give her what she so badly wanted, because I seen all of the hurt that she went through while we had it so easily. My sister in law is currently going through the same. She has been through five rounds of IUI’s and is starting the process of IVF. We have offered to carry for her as well, because it’s so hard to see the hurt and struggle of people are trying so hard to just have a family of their own. We know that we can give them this life long dreams and hopes, and we hope that we can be chosen to be able to fulfill their families as much as they want so they can have a full family that we do.
Have you discussed your plans to become a Surrogate with your spouse?
What was their response?
We have been talking about doing this for a couple years now. Starting out wanting to help my sister, and then wanting to help his sister. Both of our sisters are now becoming parents of their own on their own, but through going through all of this with them, we mentally prepared ourselves for every outcome, and we have decided that even though they are not needing us to help them grow a family we would love to give other families a chance to complete their family like we have completed ours.
Who will support you emotionally throughout and after your Surrogacy experience?
My whole family and my husband are going to.
Please describe the “ideal” couple/individual for whom you would like to be a Surrogate:
The ideal couple/individual for us to surrogate for would be a someone that shares the value of family, and that wants to welcome a family into their homes and their lives for life. To grow together and learn together all over again what the meaning of love is that you once thought you knew to grow to be so much more than you ever thought it could be. We are wanting to be very involved with the parent to be. To give updates and talk with them about every detail along the way at all times. We are wanting it to be a very open experience, and make them a part of their journey as much as we can.
Are there any circumstances which would cause you to NOT want to work with a couple or individual?
Please tell us about yourself! Describe your personality, character, interests, and hobbies
I am a very family oriented person. I have two wonderful boys that are my whole world. I am a very caring, loving, understanding person. I love to have humor in our lives. I have a dream of being able to help others in any way possible. We as a family love to grow things. We love to go out and take care of the fruit trees we have in our back yard. We are working on six right now so I can teach the boys to take care of their things and they will grow to be wonderful things. We love to always make sure we do fun activities that involve learning experiences.
How much contact would you like with your Intended Parents throughout the pregnancy?
I hope to be with an intended parent that would like to be very involved in every detail possible that they are wanting to know. This process is a wonderful experience and I would like to tell them every detail they are wanting to know.
Please write a short note to your Intended Parents
Dear Intended Parents,
I am Carly. I have a husband I have been married to for three almost four years. We have been together for five years. We have welcomed two boys into this world, and made our family whole. We are wanting to reach out to you, and let you know that the love that you hold for having a family and making it whole is what we would like to make come true for you. We are fun, loving, caring, and outgoing people. We are hoping to be matched with an intended parent that would like to be very involved through the whole pregnancy and the whole process. We are willing to do everything that you are comfortable with to make sure this is the way you hoped it would be. We feel so strongly about the love that makes you just feel whole inside that comes with when you have a baby. We once thought we had it all figured out on what love was when we met each other, and then we found out each time we welcomed each of our two boys that love that you once thought about goes out the window and it goes above and beyond something you can’t explain. That is what we strive for you to have. To experience that feeling, and know it’ll grow more every day for the rest of your life. We really hope to meet and talk with you soon.
With love and highest hopes for you to have the fullest family you desire – Carly and Taylor P.
