This post is from our wonderful staff member Bernadette:
During my surrogacy journeys, I always felt it was a hard to choose a gift for my intended parents for Christmas! I was lucky enough to be pregnant during my surrogacy journey at Christmas time. I wanted my gift to them to be special, to mean something, after all I was carrying their babies!
I did some research and decided not only to buy something for them, but to buy something special for the babies, as well. I bought baby blankets and sweaters and had them embroidered with the babies names. Then for the parents I decided to have 4-D pictures put on DVDs, so they could watch their little girls in the womb! Since my Intended Parents live in Australia, I wanted them to feel as close as possible to their babies, so I also bought them two teddy bears and inside the bears were recordings of the babies heart beats. They loved their gift so much they actually cried! I knew in my heart they were going to be amazing parents!
I know for future Christmas’s I will send them gifts that I know are unique. This year I will be sending them gifts that are personalized just for them, from their SurroMama! Geppettos toy store has wonderful one-of-a-kind toys for this purpose 🙂
