My baby is playing happily by himself at my feet right now, giving me a moment to reflect and thank the women who made it possible for me to be a mother.
To our beautiful surrogate and egg donor:
I hope that your lives have been easier because of your remarkable gift to us.
I hope that you've been able to achieve what you hoped for when you agreed to do this.
I hope that you don't regret your decision, or miss the child you helped to create and carry.
I hope you know that I will always remind Micah on mother's day to be thankful to you.
