Focusing on the Future is Required....

The truth,

no myths,

no trendy responses—

just the truth that endures for this Intended Parent about Surrogacy land is that focusing on the future at all times is required.

That is the one piece of advice that I would give to a newbie just starting out.

Dream. Imagine. Think big.

Before the transfer, during the pregnancy, and after the birth.

Create your child's life story.

You will need your creativity, enthusiasm, and idealism the entire time.

The truth is that focusing on the future is the only thing that will keep you going.

The capacity to imagine and articulate exciting future possibilities will strengthen you during the tough times.

It’s not something anyone else can do for you, but you must do this for yourself.

You have to take a long-term perspective if you’re going to guide people to places they have never been before.

And you will be taking friends, family, and strangers along with you on the ride. You are their tour guide. The first or second person they have ever met that's done Surrogacy.

And, as important as it is, inspiring a shared vision is the most difficult of all to master.

Bringing everyone you meet into your personal story.

Telling them the private details of your life.

As an Intended Parent/Parent you are constantly developing the capacity to share your vision of an ennobling and uplifting story.
