“At 4:31 pm I help bring a precious baby boy into the world for a family that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to.
It was truly an amazing humbling experience! I will always remember I am thankful to be blessed with the ability to be able to help a couple start a family. Also even more blessed to have a wife who supported me through out this journey. The wonderful Intended parents at Joy of Life look to me now more than their surrogate.
But now a friend and who also excepted my wife and our daughter some people may only think about the money ( and yes it does help), but it’s way bigger than that I want to say thank you to my beautiful wife for being so caring, being my cheerleader through labor as well.
And thank you to my Intended parents for also being so supportive and caring to my family and friends for accepting our choice in starting this journey. For the help they have given, I went into labor at 1:30 or 2:00 and delivered at 4:31 pm and pushed for 1.5 hours and it was all worth it and I would do it again.”
