There is an ancient phrase "Possession is nine-tenths of the law" that
is about land, property, or other tangible items, but I keep thinking that
it applies to Surrogacy.
During the Surrogacy journey everyone's emotions swing back and
forth based on possession.
Most people are thinking that "it's an embryo," or " a fetus,"
and only later "a baby" what is there to possess before the birth?
There are many things to possess during the process. A short list is:
- The thought of a baby.
- Expecting A Miracle.
- The Surrogates agreement to Match and join the endeavor.
- The DNA.
- The Egg.
- The Sperm.
- The Embryo.
- The Uterus.
- The Information.
- The Pregnancy Results.
- The Heart Beat Results.
- The Numbers and medical reports from the Dr. Visits.
- The Pregnancy.
- The Ultrasound Pictures.
- The Delivery.
- The Baby.
Most of the time, the main possession during the
Surrogacy is information.
The open, honest, and unfiltered truth about
what is going on with the
joint endeavor at a particular moment in time.
One side is left in the dark trying to figure out
what is going on without
the needed details to make an informed decision.
In marriage they say people "fight about the money."
In Surrogacy, it's all in the information.
What's happening today? How is the pregnancy, right now?
