I've been trying to decide how to write this post.
If to write this post.
I've decided I need to write the post, because it is an honest part of my journey.
And I've promised to share it all.
The couple that Chris and I selected have chosen not to proceed with me as their surrogate.
I've decided to respect this couple and not share their reasons for declining me.
I will say this... their reason was full of heart. And it makes me love and respect them so so much more. I really wish I could have the opportunity to know them in real life. And as I can't communicate with them in real life, my only hope is that they will read this and know there are no hard or hurt feelings. To tell them I actually shared their concerns. To thank them for their heart and their bravery. To wish them nothing but the best in their search. And in their future family.
So yes, my heart hurts. But I am also hopeful and excited for the next round of profiles I will receive in the days and weeks to come.
