The Wonders Of Surrogacy
Nowadays, many people are choosing surrogacy as a way to have a family. Although surrogacy has been an ongoing source of political and social debate, there’s no stopping those parents who want to go through with the process of surrogacy. Gestational surrogacy has become an aspiration for many parents undergoing the hardships of infertility.
Here’s a quick look at some celebrities who have taken the path to surrogacy:
In 2002, Michael Jackson had Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II by personally choosing a nurse to carry his son. Jackson had donated his sperm and carefully selected a donor egg to match the qualities he had chosen.
In 2009, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick decided to work with a surrogate. After Parker’s first pregnancy, she found that getting pregnant again had become a challenge. In an interview with Billy Bush, she said that she wouldn’t have opted for surrogacy if she could have gotten pregnant herself. Now they have twins, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge.
In 2010, Chris Daughtry and wife Deanna had twins, Adalynn and Noah, through a surrogate. They opted for gestational surrogacy because Daughtry’s wife had a partial hysterectomy in 2006 and was unable to bear a child.
The Joy Surrogacy Brings
These are just a few accounts of famous people who decided on surrogacy to have children of their own. Even with the ongoing debate over surrogacy on legal and moral grounds, there is no denying that the process has helped a lot of couples find happiness that money alone can’t buy.
Surrogacy opens a fresh window of aspiration. It enables couples with fertility concerns to have children of their own. Same-sex partners, married in legal and binding laws, are now able to have a family. Women with severe medical problems and who are not able to get pregnant are given the chance to become mothers. Also, older women above the age of 42 can still have babies of their own.
Surrogacy might not be the easiest process in the world, but those who are determined to have their own children may decide to go through with it.
