Introducing Charissa – North Carolina
What does surrogacy mean to you?
Personally, surrogacy is my chance to blend my love for being pregnant with my love for helping others. I have had easy pregnancies where I relished every moment, and I know that as a surrogate I cannot wait to share the whole journey with my intended parents.
What do you like/love so far about Abundant Beginnings?
Julie S.! As the surrogate coordinator, she has answered every question and concern and has never kept me waiting for a response. I can tell that each staff member believes so passionately about the surrogacy process because they have shared their experiences with me openly and honestly. They are warm, friendly, and I am so thankful that I have found this agency.
What’s your support system like?
I know that I am blessed to have so many friends and family members that support me in everything I do, not just surrogacy. Everyone has made it clear that they respect my decision to become a surrogate and cannot wait to be there for me along the journey.
If you could say something to your future IPs, what would it be?
I am so excited for your opportunity to grow your family. As a mother, I can tell you there is no greater privilege of being able to help a child grow and develop into an amazing individual. Parenthood is the hardest yet most rewarding job anyone could ever have and the fact that you’re doing everything possible to make that happen is extremely commendable. I would feel honored if chosen to help you take this next step and please know that I will do what is required of me without hesitation and you will maintain my full support throughout this process.
