Just had to share this.

I have been following a few different surrogate blogs and just recently one of the surrogates delivered the IP's sweet baby girl. They had a photographer in there for the birth and posted the slide show on her blog. I just had to share this with you guys b/c it really hit me with the reality we will be facing in 15 short weeks. I watched it probably 4 times and cried the whole time. It was so beautiful!! What stuck with me the most was what a great welcome party that little girl had coming into this world. In the movie the photographer quoted a verse from the Bible that says " Every good and perfect gift is from above" James 1:17 and that truth just resonated with me. I am so thankful for my children, I don't know what my life would be like without them and getting to be a part of this opportunity for God to bless another family's life is such a honor. I can't thank Ali and Ben enough for trusting me with their precious cargo it's a "job" I don't take lightly. Watching this movie made me that much more excited to share in their special day with them.

Here are the sites for both the photographers website and surrogates blog. Watch it and enjoy!!

  1. Brandi, I totally don't mind that you shared our blog & photo montage :) I love that so many people are getting the opportunity to view it, and to witness what a true miracle the birth of Emma was! I too feel so very honored & blessed to have been "chosen" to be a part of this journey, and love sharing that blessing with others!

    Good luck to you and your upcoming delivery :) I would highly recommend finding a photographer, or someone you trust, to get as many pictures as they can! You will want to relive that moment later as it will be over so quickly - its just so surreal!

  2. Oh my goodness...
    I just watched the photo montage and I have tears in my eyes. I don't even know what to say but, Wow :)

  3. Just wanted to let you know that I just found your blog...and I think you are a wonderfully fantastic woman!! I look forward to continue reading about your progress. Much love and many blessings to you. You're a sweet soul~


  4. Hey Brandi
    I randomly found your blog through Jades blog, so weird. I'am totally fascinated and blown away by what you're doing. I read through your whole first stages of this surrogacy journey, and I plan on reading more when I have more time. Just wanted to say hello and let you know I'm snooping:-) I'm pregnant with our third child and we are due right around the same time! I don't keep track of everything like you guys are so it's fun for me to read things like "15 weeks left" and realize that's me too! yikes! Happy blogging Brandi, see you around:-)

  5. Holly! I'm glad you are intersted and it's pretty cool that we are due around the same time. :) I like to organzie so I keep track of EVERYTHING so if your following my blog I'm pretty sure you'll be seeing the count down from here on out haha.

  6. And thank you Carol :) I'm happy to have you following along. It's a lot of fun to be able to share this journey.
