|It's not often I post in the forums, I generally just read. But in this case, I feel the need to respond.|
I have Poly-cystic ovarian disease, and have wanted nothing more than to have a child, since I knew what they were, My biggest aspiration in life was to be a mother. I gave up, after 16 years in a relationship, I accepted the fact that I would never be a parent. Not what was in the stars for me i suppose. Until this past november, unexpectedly, I got pregnant. What a precious gift. Now, not in a relationship, I Feel sooo incredibly blessed, I suppose I am meant to be a single parent, and I am ok with that. Not the ideal situation, but mine none the less. Please tell your friend, that miracles do happen, my doctor says that I am one of them. Also never lose hope.
As for being a surrogate, I don't know how I feel about it, I have recently mentioned to a friend that I would consider doing it for her, she is in her 40's and wants a child in the worst way, but can't have her own. I mentioned the other day, that after I have mine, I would consider having one for her, for me I feel blessed to be having one. I'm not greedy. So I have thought about, and will continue to think about it...and we will see what happens.
What ever you decide, I wish you all the best, and your friend as well...
