Fundraising HERE for medical/lawyer fees linked to surrogacy. The personal story of Jessica and Chris are also at this fundraising link.
Here we go! All of the preliminary tests and okays have been given to Jessica and Chris. We will begin our fundraising journey and then the work begins.
A while back I was ‘informed’ on someones view about surrogacy and God’s plans. Not that I hadn’t given much thought and prayer before this was presented to me, but I must say that I reflected even more after this day.
My personal take on christians and surrogacy : God can use modern medicine to do amazing things. My cousin was given a new heart, should it have been God’s will she die and not be given that heart as an infant? My father just underwent Chemotherapy (adding toxic drugs to his body) To have his very rare Leukemia vanish from his cells. Should he have just died? I understand the view that surrogacy is taking things into our own hands. I actually agree with that, Faith without works is dead!
I do not believe that someone who is a Christian should take on being a surrogate without prayer and seeking. One thing that I find amazing is, as Jessica has healed bit by bit to be able to even produce her own eggs, My own body has struggled. By being a surrogate, there are medical conditions that will be corrected within me!!! (This I did not know until talking to my personal physician on her feelings about me being a surrogate.)
How amazing is that, two halves coming together for wholeness?
I was literally woken up in the very same hour that Jessica was praying and seeking, watching a surrogate story. I felt such an impression, Jessica and Chris have their OWN baby to be born. My body will just be a vessel to carry. I don’t believe in todays modern technologies, that there is one thing wrong with carrying someone else’s child for them. I have been a mother, to three amazing sons, watched them grow an impact the lives of others. I want Jessica and Chris to see the very same things within their own children. Just because a mother is unable to go through the medical trauma of delivery does not mean someone willing should have to say no because they are a Christian. I am laying my own life down for my sister.
I have been a birth mother, a foster mother and now a surrogate mother. Years ago I was given a dream of having newborn babies that were not mine. I was given a word by a friend, that God would lay children down at your feet. There has been life spoken over me for years and I feel it is concerning this very moment. I am called to be a mother in many ways. This is one faccet of that.
I know I don’t have to explain myself or make excuses, I know not everyone will agree, one direction or the other. It is a personal conviction and choice for me to do this. Do I have moments of fear? Yes. Do I have moments of doubt? Yes. Does that mean I will stop pursuing my personal journey? No.
So here you have it, our journey has begun and I will have JOY in the process ( well maybe not on hormone shots, but you know 😉 ).
