The Dad Diaries

Embarking on a Journey of Love and Science

Surrogacy – now, that’s a term that seems to ring a bell for most, but trust me, it’s a whole different ball game when you dive into its depths. I often find myself wearing the hat of an impromptu educator, delving into the nuances of this fascinating process with friends, family, and sometimes, even curious strangers I meet. It’s a concept that beautifully intertwines the wonders of modern medical science with the age-old longing to become a parent. Through my own journey, I’ve discovered surrogacy to be a glowing beacon of hope, illuminated by the steadfast support of my parents and my dear friends. Speaking of friends, my girlfriends have been nothing short of superheroes, gearing up to be the ultimate support squad in this unique adventure of mine!

But let’s be honest; not everyone views this path through rose-coloured glasses. I’ve encountered my share of raised eyebrows and concerned voices. Some folks out there think I’m overstepping nature’s boundaries, trying to play God, or undermining the sanctity of traditional childbearing – you know, the whole ‘babies should be conceived in love and within the sanctity of marriage’ argument. To those skeptics, I respond with heartfelt conviction: this baby, my soon-to-be child, is being conceived and brought into this world enveloped in an abundance of love. The love might not follow traditional norms, but it’s love all the same – deep, unconditional, and boundless.

This journey isn’t just about fulfilling my dream to be a parent; it’s about nurturing a life, a tiny being that will soon become my world. I am wholeheartedly committed to ensuring that this child, whether a boy or a girl, grows up in an environment filled with love, understanding, and endless opportunities. The path of surrogacy may be unconventional, sure, but it’s a path paved with sincere intentions and a promise of a future filled with joy, laughter, and learning.

In this journey, I am not just creating a life; I am embracing a responsibility – a responsibility to raise a child who knows they are wanted, cherished, and loved beyond measure. This is my commitment, my vow, as I step into the world of parenthood through the incredible and awe-inspiring avenue of surrogacy.

What is Surrogacy?

So, what exactly is surrogacy? In simple terms, it’s an arrangement where a woman agrees to carry a pregnancy for another person or couple, who will become the child’s parents after birth. In my case, it involved choosing an egg, fertilizing it with my sperm to create an embryo, and then implanting this embryo into a surrogate. For nine months, she carries the baby – a baby that doesn’t share her DNA – and then, on the due date, I’ll be in Kenya, arms open wide, ready to hold my child for the first time.

Sounds straightforward, doesn’t it? But let’s be real: nothing in life worth having comes easy. And perhaps it’s the complexity of this journey that makes it all the more meaningful to me. This path has been a whirlwind, a mixture of excitement, learning, and anticipation. And the best part? It’s only just beginning.

This is my story. It’s not the typical narrative you might expect, nor is it always filled with sunshine and rainbows. But it’s real, it’s mine, and it’s filled with raw, honest emotions. From TV show production to learning about HCG levels (which, by the way, I just found out increased by 124% in 48 hours – that’s great news!), I’m navigating uncharted waters. But I’m learning, every step of the way, how to be the best dad I can be for my child. Whether it’s a boy or a girl (though I’m secretly hoping for a girl!), I’m here for this journey, ready to embrace whatever comes my way.
