That said, when I started this journey in the surrogacy world I became friends with the sweetest woman who was struggling to get pregnant. We became very close and I consider her to be one of my very best friends. I hurt for her each month that she didn't become pregnant. It hurt to watch her struggle when I was getting pregnant for another family. Then when I got pregnant with TJ she told me how her husband and herself were going through the process to start IVF. I was so excited for them and gave them lots of tips and referred them to my favorite RE. They were soon to be starting the egg retrieval in the next month or so and then IVF to get pregnant with their little nugget. I was so excited to be following them during this and to hear about the process from a different perspective. I was mostly anxious for this to work for them since they've been waiting and TTC for a very long time.
This week though my sweet friend text me some of the MOST amazing news ever; she is PREGNANT!! I am so excited for her as if it were myself expecting! With the diagnosis they received and them trying for literally 7 years straight this is the miracle they have been awaiting. She is not very far along but I am praying so hard that this little baby stays and they get to raise her on Earth in their family. Yes, I'm voting it is a girl! God is great and works in the most miraculous ways!
