Today, I received a beautiful email from a mother and a video attached that made me cry all the tears.
Holly wrote in to tell us, sadly, last year, November 2013, she lost boy/girl twins at 21 weeks. My heart broke as read her email. I cannot even imagine. Then she went on to tell me something beautiful. A friend of theirs had offered to be their gestational carry, and be the surrogate for them.
"We kept our surrogacy a secret and surprised our family at 24 weeks, right after holding a memorial for my twins/spreading ashes. My family thought we were taking a family picture (taken by a "stanger") but it was really our surrogate's husband filming!!"
Pictured: Holly's family's reaction:
I love videos that surprise people with beautiful emotional things. I must say, I have never seen a video like this, and I don't know if it because surrogacy is so close to my heart, or because I know the loss this family went through, but I cried so hard I could not longer see the screen. Get tissues out, this is beautiful:
